Music Venue Trust: Pipeline Investment Fund

The Pipeline Investment Fund (PIF) is a new grant-giving fund established by Music Venue Trust and so far has helped support 67 Grassroots Music Venues, distributing just over £282,000, to venues across the United Kingdom.

PIF allows small-scale grant applications (up to £5,000) from UK-based Grassroots Music Venues to support two areas of work:

  • Small-scale capital applications; including lights, sound, access, ventilation and minor building alterations
  • Staff Training; diversifying your workforce, succession planning, skills development, and strengthening local community ties

The fund will prioritise support for organisations who may be excluded from other available funding and we would ask venues to approach the fund appropriately and economically, for something that will make a real difference to your organisation and venue.

PIF is open to all venues that meet any of the three definitions of a Grassroots Music Space
GMV Definition
GMP Definition
GMAS Definition

We recommend all applicants read our frequently asked questions.
