Over the five years since its launch, Music Venue Trust has steadily built up its roster of key supporters, artists, broadcasters, politicians and music industry figures as patrons of the charity. This week, the charity announced five new supporters.
The five new supporters include: Skindred, Holding Absence, Sound of the Sirens, BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart and deputy leader of the Green Party (England and Wales) Amelia Womack. Their arrival marks the charity’s first 50 patrons, which it hopes will encourage further support for Music Venue Trust’s work to protect, secure and improve grassroots music venues.
Alongside this, former industry patron Phyllis Belezos joins the board of trustees, bringing her wealth of music industry experience to complement the skills of the existing 10 board members.
You can see all 50 patrons on the Patrons Page of the MVT website.
