Orlando Weeks New Art Project Will Benefit Music Venues Trust

And it features work from IDLES, Sports Team, Marika Hackman, Jamie T...

Orlando Weeks has confirmed plans for a new art project that will benefit the Music Venues Trust.

The London songwriter has been touched by the work done by the trust, which is desperately trying to help venues across the land.

This new project aims to raise funds through unique and collectible signed pieces of art, opening today (October 21st) at 3pm.

For sale on a first-come / first-served basis, each item will be priced at the actually-quite-affordable £40.

Orlando Weeks used the artwork for his album 'A Quickening' as the basis for the venture, which finds a total of 140 illustrations being created.

Artists include IDLES, Sports Team, Marika Hackman, Jamie T, The Japanese House, Bill Ryder-Jones, and many more.

Orlando Weeks commented: “Everyone involved recognises how crucial UK Venues of every shape and size are! They are where we go to commune and celebrate and sing and spill drinks together. These cards are a small gesture of thanks for the pleasure and opportunity that venues and their staff, up and down the country, have given so many of us.”
