Live Music

Volume 448: debated on Monday 3 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps the Government are taking to support live music and encourage the participation of young people. (81375)

In 2004 we established the Live Music Forum to promote live performance. It has brokered the creation of music-making spaces for young people in Wrexham and in Camberwell, and is looking at ways of adapting and rolling out those models.

We also support young people's music making through the Music Manifesto and through the national charity Youth Music, with £10 million per year of National Lottery funding, which has reached over 1 million young people to date.
