The charity plans to get purchasing underway in April. Nine venues have been earmarked for inclusion in the first phase of the project, with further venue freeholds set to be identified for purchase as and when they become available.When venues are purchased, they will immediately be offered a rent reduction and help with building repairs and insurance.Mark Davyd, CEO and Founder of MVT said: “We know that changing the ownership model of grassroots music venues is the single most important change we can make to this sector.

The best people to Own Our Venues are the people who love them, need them and use them. We want to see everyone who has a stake in the future of these venues become a direct financial stakeholder in that future; local communities, artists, audiences, the music industry.
