COVID and lockdown: We visit a grass-roots music venue to talk about the impact.
Impact on grass root venues.
As our investigations and reporting continues on the subject of COVID19 and lockdown. We have been contacting venues, promoters and festival organisers to hear from them how this has impacted upon them.
One such venue, Dirty Rockers in Dudley, West Midlands invited us to visit them and see for ourselves what affect this has had on them and what steps they've made so that can re-open, all-be-it without the live music that these places NEED!
We spoke to venue owners, Rachel and Mac and were given a tour round the re-vamped venue which has been re-modelled thanks to the dedicated visitors to the place they obviously hold so dear!.
