Beverley Whitrick (Music Venue Trust)

Music Venue Trust is a registered charity, created in January 2014 to protect the UK live music network by securing the long term future of grassroots music venues. We work to gain recognition of the essential role these venues fulfil, not only for artist development but also for the cultural and music industries, the economy and local communities. We aim to protect, secure and improve venues, making them more efficient and improving the experience for performers and audiences. Beverley's role includes the running of the Trust, co-ordination of campaigns and communication, fundraising, profile raising, building the ever-growing database, producing Venues Day, developing the Music Venues Alliance, liaising with arts and cultural sector partners and representing Music Venue Trust (and through it the Music Venues Alliance) at national and international meetings. Beverley has over 20 years' experience of Arts Development, event management, tour co-ordination, building networks, funding, evaluation and strategy. She has worked as a local government Arts Development Officer in 3 different authorities and as a freelance Arts Consultant in London and Barcelona.
