GMV funding for the Louisiana

The Louisiana pub is one of three Bristol music venues to receive emergency relief funding from  the Grassroots Music Venue (GMV) Crisis Service – the others being  Motion and The Old Bookshop.

A total of 135 grassroots venues facing closure across the UK will receive a share of £3.36 million, part of the Government’s £1.57 billion support package for the arts. The Bristol venues will receive £80,000 each with Arts Council England delivering the funding.
