Music For The Many: Live In London

Following the launch of the Music For The Many campaign last month, the Peace & Justice Project hosted another gig at The Waiting Room, featuring performances from Tarantina and Hex Girlfriend.

With speeches from our founder Jeremy Corbyn MP, Love Music Hate Racism national organiser Alex LoSardo and Mike Jackson of Lesbians & Gay Men Support The Miners, the Music For The Many campaign hit Stoke Newington with a packed out show at The Waiting Room.

Introducing the first act of the night, Music For The Many campaign organiser Samuel Sweek said: "Our grassroots live music venues are under threat. If we lose them, we risk losing an entire generation of talent and all that comes with it; the boost to local economies, jobs and decades of music heritage. That is why we launched Music For The Many and that is the message we are taking across the country in the coming weeks and months. Our government must step up and ensure this vital sector is protected by funding it properly!"

Also at the event, the Peace & Justice Project announced there would be upcoming Music For The Many gigs hosted in Brighton, Leeds, Liverpool and Glasgow, as well as many others, to build momentum for the campaign and keep the issue of grassroots music venues at the top of the agenda.
