28.09.2021: UK Music has lined up a brilliant panel to discuss “How Does Music Recover from Covid?” at the Conservative Party’s annual conference.

Our panel line-up in Manchester will feature Night-Time Economy Adviser for the Greater Manchester Combined Authority Sacha Lord, Chief Executive of UK Hospitality Kate Nicholls OBE, All-Party Parliamentary Group on Music Chair David Warburton MP, Conservative MP &  APPG for Events Theresa Villiers and Conservative MP & APPG on Music member Simon Baynes.

UK Music Chief Executive Jamie Njoku-Goodwin will chair the event.

The discussion will take place on Tuesday October 5 from 1pm to 2.30pm at Cobden 2, Manchester Central.

It will focus on the ways the music industry can rebuild after Covid-19 devastated the sector.

The event comes as UK Music prepares to launch its Music Industry Strategic Recovery Plan to help boost jobs and growth in the sector.

Among other likely topics are the need for further Government support to help the music industry return to growth and the vital importance of preserving the talent pipeline on which the industry relies.

The venue is within the secure zone for the conference, so you will need a security pass to access the event.

Refreshments will be provided.
