Grassroots movement Save Our Scene have organised two protests this week.
Save Our Scene was founded by campaigner George Fleming, who was appalled by the government's lack of support for live music.
Previous events have raised more than £3900, which has been donated directly to Help Musicians.
This week - on December 2nd and 3rd - Save Our Scene will host two further protests, designed to raise awareness of the issues facing musicians.
The bike protests in London and Bristol will be accompanied by music, with Save Our Scene founder George Fleming commenting...
“As instructed by the Government, the music industry is getting on their bike. Our aim is to bring music lovers and professionals together and show the Government how important it is to protect the arts. We will be protesting until we see change, we cannot stop and must stand strong for what we believe in.”
“The first protest in London was so successful back in October and we’re confident that it’s only going to get bigger. I’m excited to take the campaign to Bristol. The city is one of the most musically eclectic in the country. If you love music and have not been to Bristol before, now is your chance!”
