Music Venue Trust announces series of events across the UK

Music Venue Trust has created a series of events to build towards its flagship networking event Venues Day, which takes place in London in October.

Venue representatives will have the chance to attend seven meetings spread across the country during May and June. Designed to be on major travel routes, the events cover Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and England.
