Music Makeover Restaurants 2016 now open for entries 

For the first time ever, PRS for Music are giving your restaurant the chance to win £5,000 worth of music equipment, plus invaluable guidance from music experts and an exclusive launch event featuring performances from PRS for Music members.

PRS for Music is calling all independent restaurants across the UK to submit entries from 11th July 2016. Entrants will be shortlisted and subsequently go through a judging round where a panel of key music professionals alongside influencers from each sector will participate in deciding the winners.

PRS for Music devised the Music Makeover campaign for  restaurants to showcase and raise awareness of how good music can impact businesses. The quality of the sound system itself, the acoustics, music choice and volume all impact both your customers’ and staff experience.

Celebrating the value of music in restaurants, PRS for Music is also offering a bespoke music consultation from a leading music and technology expert advising them on the best use of music in their store and a launch event to celebrate and promote their win featuring live music from PRS for Music members alongside the £5,000 prize.
