MU Fair Play Venue scheme signs up 100th grassroots venue

Sixty Million Postcards, a grassroots music venue based in Bournemouth, has become the 100th venue to join the MU’s Fair Play Venue scheme.

Sixty Million Postcards, a grassroots music venue based in Bournemouth, has become the 100th venue to join the MU’s Fair Play Venue scheme.

The 300 capacity venue, which opened in 2006, has seen bands like Spector, Wolf Alice and The Wytches grace their stage alongside an eclectic mix of DJs and regular club nights.

Sixty Million Postcards promoter Tor Byrnes told the MU what becoming a Fair Play Venue meant to the venue; “It's great to acknowledge and shout about the fact we treat everyone within the music industry fairly and with respect, as all venues should endeavour to do”.

The MU’s Fair Play Venue scheme helps musicians find Fair Play Venues across the country. A database of venues will be launching this summer. The MU hopes the database will become an essential tool for MU members planning tours or finding venues that value the fair treatment of musicians as workers.
