‘Make it Happen’ will take place on Friday 15th May at 2pm in the Artist Village and is available to anyone with a Delegate or Artist Village Pass for the Great Escape. You don’t need to register to attend but PRS for Music are encouraging people to register prior so attendees can provide suggestions on the topics and questions the session will cover.

Jules Parker, PRS for Music said: ‘This’ll be a really useful afternoon focusing on practical advice for songwriters, bands, managers or anyone trying to get their music noticed.’
