Give a Gig Week

Thank you so much to all the people and venues who organised, hosted, promoted, attended, donated or performed at a live music event for Give a Gig Week 2017!

With a total of 118 gigs taking place nationwide between 24 and 31 March, the first-ever Give a Gig Week has been a fantastic celebration of music in all its forms.

We’ve had indie, grime, metal, classical, ska, R&B, jazz and all sorts in between. From Brighton to Bradford, from iconic venues to front rooms and even buskers on top of a mountain.

And most importantly, the money you’ve raised from Give a Gig Week will help Youth Music invest in life-changing music-making projects for tens of thousands of children and young people in incredibly challenging circumstances.

Have a look at the photo highlights from the week here. You can also check out #GiveaGigWeek on StorifyFacebook, Twitter and Instagram to see what’s been going on around the country.
