Art Council – Emergency Grassroots Music Venues Fund


Art Council have opened a fund to support grassroots live music venues in England, such as pubs, clubs and community venues, that are at imminent risk of insolvency owing to the coronavirus outbreak and resulting lockdown.

Applicants can apply for grants from £1,000 to £80,000, to cover operational costs incurred between 4th August and 30th September 2020. Majority of awards will be around £15,000.

The scheme will only fund those cost that cannot otherwise be covered though grants, loans and/or other UK Government initiatives (such as the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme).
