Sybil Bell, founder, Independent Venue Week:

"Having successfully launched our new Independent Venue Community initiative last month, we want to continue that momentum with our venues as well as look at Independent Venue Week and plans for our 10th anniversary in January 2023. Independents Day is a key part of these preparations, allowing us to talk face-to-face with our community and for them to meet and network with funders, agents and promoters. 

"We also want to push forward on some really important issues that will help ensure the grassroots music sector is as inclusive and vibrant as possible. I'm really excited at the range and diversity of speakers we have onboard, and truly grateful for everyone's continued support."
