New campaign launched to support independent venues during coronavirus pandemic

End of the Road festival is backing the campaign

#VirtualPint is raising funds for music venues and pubs closed during the coronavirus lockdown.

A new campaign, #VirtualPint, has been launched to raise funds for independent music venues, pubs, theatres and arts spaces affected by the coronavirus outbreak. Run through Just Giving, the campaign encourages supporters to buy a virtual drink with all proceeds split between the Music Venue Trust and the pubs, theatres and arts spaces themselves.

Buying a virtual drink also enters givers into a prize draw with chances to win tickets to End of the Road festival, other concert tickets at venues such as The Lexington in London, bar tabs at participating pubs and studio time at The Libertibes’ Albion Studios.
