Participant Information for Venue Survey
What? The UK Live Music Census is the first ever national music census in the world to map live music activity across a whole country.
Who? It is being run by researchers at the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle.
Why? Your data will help to understand the value of live music and help to protect it.
How long? This survey should take around 20 minutes – you can save and continue at any point if you would like to complete it later. Please note that very few questions are mandatory and that because of the ‘skip logic’, the percentage bar can be misleading – you may be closer to the end of the survey than you think!
What happens to my data? Your data is protected under the Data Protection Act 1998, and will only be shared with other parties as set out in the participation information below.
