“The pandemic has been so hard for so many of us and we’ve done our best to adapt our co-op during this challenging time. We have continued to operate, providing income for musicians, employment for staff, and joy for isolated people. We broadcast 15 events a month including jazz, folk, rock, and classical. Performers and technicians work in a covid-secure environment to deliver high-quality livestreams. These have been viewed by thousands and have raised over £40,000 for musicians.

“If we’ve inspired you, impressed you, helped you or made a positive difference in any way we’d love it if you could vote for us.”

The Co-op of the Year Awards 2021 are organised by Co-operatives UK – the network for Britain’s thousands of
