Independent Venue Week 2017 was our biggest and most successful year so far – but plans are already underway for our 2018 celebrations.
The IVW team is currently in the process of contacting ALL the venues who took part this year*, but with 2018 marking our fifth birthday we’re keen to invite more independent venues from across the country to join in.
If you run or promote a venue, and are keen to showcase the passion, commitment and independent spirit behind it – both to your local community and beyond – then Independent Venue Week is for you.
Getting involved is simple and your commitment can range from simply staging one show during IVW18 (which will take place early next year, exact dates to be announced in due course) to participating in a wider community of venues, promoters, fans, agents and artists.
To sign your venue up for 2018 all you need to do is read our Code Of Conduct, and if you are eligible, agree and are happy to sign, simply fill in the form below, before 30 September 2017, and the IVW team will be in touch.
Independent Venue Week is an opportunity to shout about how the local venues of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland enrich our culture from the grassroots up, so sign-up to not only join in the celebrations, but to ensure a wider audience knows what you’re doing all year round…
*If you took part in IVW17 you don’t need to do anything as the team will contact you, though if your contact details have changed since February 2017 please feel free to drop us a line.
