This Independent Venue Week, we hit the road, touring round some of the North West's finest venues; including Night & Day Cafe in Manchester, The 27 Club in Liverpool, The Ferret in Preston and The Globe in Glossop.
Why does Independent Venue Week matter? Well, without these venues, the UK's music scene basically wouldn't exist. We think music fans should have a place to enjoy affordable, authentic live music on their doorstep, and artists should have a place to ply their trade, hone their craft and perfect their art. After all... we can't all start our careers playing Wembley Arena now, can we?
