Britain's music scene is thriving, says PRS
According to the organisation, live music is a vitally important aspect of the UK's creative sector.
Chief executive Jeremy Fabinyi commented: "From the Southbank Centre to King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, from the Norwich Arts Centre to the Cliffs Pavilion, the British music scene is thriving."
The PRS named the Southbank Centre in London as the leading live music venue in the UK, as it staged over 630 musical events in 2008 alone - nearly 200 more than anywhere else.
Other busy venues included the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester and the O2 Academy in Oxford, as well as the Stables in Milton Keynes.
This comes after Feargal Sharkey, former frontman of The Undertones, told the Guardian that music is good for Britain's cultural and economic wellbeing.Posted on 4 Aug 2009 11:33 to category : Music News
