Win up to £10,000 for your live music venue

Enter one of our six regional competitions for independent live music venues running across the UK to win up to £10,000 of improvements for your live music venue.

Independent live music venues are an important part of the music industry ecosystem in the UK. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has put enormous pressure on the live music sector, but 2022 begins with a renewed optimism that we can all once again enjoy live music in our favourite venues.

To help support this return we have launched Back To Live Music Venue Prize which gives independent live music venues the chance to win one of six regional prizes of up to £10,000 to help improve their facilities for songwriters, artists or music fans.

Who can enter

Back to Live Music Venue Prize is open to independent live music venues, that are not part of a national brand. Venues can be bespoke music venues or be part of another business such as a pub or bar, as long as they had an established live music offering of over 100 days per year before the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are looking for live music venues at the heart of their communities and ones in which the £10,000 prize will make a real difference to the venue, music fans and local songwriters.

How to enter

To enter you need to select the regional competition your venue is located in below and then answer two questions explaining how the prize money would be spent, and what it would mean for your business to win. You can also submit a supporting max 5 min video if you wish.

The winning entry will be selected using these answers by a panel of judges from across the music, arts, and hospitality sectors who will follow our agreed judging criteria.

    Prize

  28. The prize for the Winner will be Products and/or Services up to an aggregate value of £10,000.00 (ten thousand pounds). The prize awarded may be to a value less than £10,000.00 which shall depend on the costs of the proposals submitted in the winning entry.
  29. The Products and/or Services must:

    a) reflect the proposals set out in the entry submitted by the Winner; and
    b) enhance the live music offering of the Venue, which may include the experience for customers, performing artists or songwriters.

    (the “Prize”).
  30. The Promoter will seek to engage retailers and/or suppliers directly for the Products and/or Services, on behalf of the Winner.
  31. Alternatively, the Promoter may at its discretion permit the Winner to purchase any Products and/or acquire the Services themselves and the Promoter will then re-imburse the Winner. To qualify for the re-imbursement, the Winner will be required to:

    a) obtain the approval of the Promoter before committing to any Products and/or Services; and
    b) supply valid receipts and/or invoices to the Promoter for all Products or Services relating to the Prize.

    The Promoter may withhold approval under 31(a) where the Products and/or Services do not meet the requirements set out under 29.
  32. Where the Prize is the provision by the Promoter of Products and/or Services, the Prize shall be awarded as soon as reasonably practical following:

    a) agreement between the Winner and the Promoter as to how to implement the Winner’s entry; and
    b) the Promoter’s engagement of the applicable retailer or supplier.
  33. The Winner acknowledges that the date for awarding the entirety of the Prize may be influenced by factors that are outside of the Promoter’s control, such as the availability of equipment from retailers or of suitable suppliers of services. If excessive delays are likely, the Promoter may suggest alternative Products and Services more readily available, which will be as closely aligned to the proposals in the winning entry as reasonably possible.
  34. Where the Prize is re-imbursement, the Promoter will award the Prize no later than 30 days from the date of submission to the Promoter of any valid invoices or receipts. The re-imbursement may occur on a per-invoice basis.
  35. The Prize is not transferable to any other individual, venue or organisation.
  36. In the unlikely event that no Products or Services can be sourced that reflect the winning entry and no suitable alternatives are available, then the Promoter will substitute a cash alternative for the Prize.

Frequently asked questions

This competition is for independent live music venues. Venues can be bespoke music venues or be part of another business such as a pub or bar as long as they had an established live music offering before COVID-19.

To enter the competition, you must be:

  • 18 years or over;
  • A resident of the UK; and
  • An authorised representative of a venue that meets the following criteria:

  2. The venue is not part of a national brand;
  3. Music is fully integrated within the venue offering; and

An “authorised representative” is someone with the authority to:

  • Approve any purchases of physical products and/or the services of installing the physical products at the premises of the Venue, or, alternatively, manage the obtaining of the consents from the relevant parties in relation to those products or services.

The prize money is to be spent on physical products and/or the services of installing the physical products, to enhance the live music offering of your venue.
