PRS For Music has announced the finalists in its Music Makeover competition, the initiative where pubs can compete for a five grand grant to help them improve their live music facilities.
And the finalists are…
The Brunel Arms, Pontyclun, Wales
Pig & Whistle, Ladbroke Grove, London
The Burnaby Arms, Bedfordshire
The Grafton, Kentish Town, London
The Shepherds Crook, Portsmouth
Says PRS For Music Director Of Licensing Paul Clements: “We are overwhelmed by the number of impressive entries we’ve had from around the UK. The pub is one of our much loved institutions and smart establishments are diversifying their business model to attract customers. It is encouraging to see so many new licensees in our Music Makeover final, who are dedicated entrepreneurs who want to make music central to their local communities again”.
The overall winner will be announced in late December.
