The Musician Extra

The MU’s Regions and Sections regularly produce The Musician Extra newsletters for distribution to the appropriate members. The six Regional editions of The Musician Extra are produced for members in advance of the Regional AGMs that are held each autumn. 

Those from the MU Sections, and the Equalities Committee, are produced in keeping with the demands of the relevant democratic procedures.

Each Extra includes news of MU elections, plus on occasion MU event information, discount schemes and articles of particular interest to members of the Region or Section in question. Editions of The Musician Extra are distributed in either print or digital form, as appropriate. Each copy is available in large-print, text-only format for visually-impaired members, upon application to the appropriate Regional Office or MU Section or Equalities contact.
