English music venues to receive £2.25 million in pandemic relief 

27th July 2020 (Resident Advisor). Venues, including nightclubs with "a significant live music programme," are eligible for grants of up to £80,000. £2.25 million in emergency grants have been made available to English music venues. As part of the UK government's £1.57 billion cultural rescue package, venues can receive between £1,000 and £80,000 until September 2020. (Music venues in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be eligible for their own pandemic initiatives.) The scheme includes nightclubs "that regularly host DJ and MC based events but also have a significant live music programme focusing on grassroots talent and original material." The UK nightlife community had been calling for more clarity on which venues were eligible for the government's rescue package, leading to the launch of the #LetUsDance campaign last week.
