Music Venue Trust has teamed up with The National Lottery to help to #ReviveLive music in grassroots music nenues across the UK this summer with a fantastic line up of tours, one-off events and special performances.

And it’s all about bringing friends and communities back together.

The National Lottery is supporting artists and crews to get out playing in front of audiences… back where they are meant to be.
