A nationwide movement designed to safeguard music’s future has chosen a Welwyn Garden City pub as its next destination.

The Open Mic Movement will hold an event at The Doctors Tonic on Sunday, January 21, where there will be a session for solo artists, bands with drums and guitar fly-rigs.

A spokesman for the event said: “We’re working to shore up the music industry.

“The music industry is imperilled because grassroots venues are closing down – namely pubs. Pubs are closing at a rate of 29 per week. Soon there will be no place for artists and bands to perform.

“Our aim is to reverse this trend. We are making sure that at least one really good music pub stays open in every town.”

The session will start from 8pm. For more information visit http://openmicmovement.org/about-us-preamble-and-quick-links.
