IN: “There’s a venue in Brighton called Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar which has been home to many developing bands in it’s 7 year history…”
OUT: “…BBC Music is our broadcast partner.”
My digital story is based around the recent news that the beloved local music venue Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar is to close at the end of the year. I take a look a the reasons behind its closure, the impact of venue closures and the positive side to the story by speaking to Sybil Bell – the founder of Independent Venue Week – a project designed to help and promote independent music venues across the UK.
