• Nordoff Robbins has launched its Christmas appeal, with a video telling the story of how the music therapy charity helped seventeen year old Justin Bieber fan Evie. The campaign comes with the support of Bieber himself.

• Independent Venue Week returns next year from 23-29 Jan. Acting as ambassador for the event will be Tim Burgess, who says: “Independent venues are where every band starts and where music fans get to see emerging talent … Lots of venues are closing – we definitely need to stick together and stop this happening”.
