PRS for Music Heritage Awards

Since 2009, the PRS for Music Heritage Awards have celebrated the genesis of icons in local, live music venues.

This annual accolade is given to UK venues that have played a crucial role in helping to create music history, giving now-famous acts their first-ever gig and helping them on their way to success.
