The Brit Bar started this petition to Mike Bell (North Somerset Council)

The Brit Bar in Weston-super-Mare has been a pub for around 200 years. Over the last decade has developed the reputation as being a superb, little live music venue which hosts 150-185 events per year, 3-6 times per week.

‘The Brit’ has recently been attempting to become acknowledged as a recognised Grassroots Music Venue. Despite meeting all of the criteria required to be a GMV, it has (so far) been unable to achieve such classification and recognition from the higher powers.

The result of failing to be acknowledged as a GMV means that it is unable to get the funding support it needs, the recognition as a notable place to perform, and is unable host viable performances at accessible times to the public as a result of the 10pm curfew and social distancing measures.

As a venue which hosts events from all styles of music (Bhangra, Blues, Punk, Metal, Ska & Reggae, Indie, Acoustic, EDM, Folk and so on) from acts of all ages, genders, ethnic backgrounds and at various stages in their career; in the last year, ‘The Brit’ has seen performances from college bands, local bands, touring bands, up and coming artists and more established bands such as 3 Daft Monkeys and XSLF (Stiff Little Fingers).

Please sign this petition to help The Brit Bar get the support it needs, and the recognition it deserves.
