News Orlando Weeks launches new art project to benefit Music Venue Trust

Featuring contributions from Wolf Alice, Sports Team, IDLES and loads more!

To raise money for Music Venue Trust, Orlando Weeks has launched a brand new art project, inviting loads of musician pals to create unique pieces of art which will go on sale at 3pm today (21st October)!

“Everyone involved recognises how crucial UK Venues of every shape and size are!” Orlando says, “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.”

With 140 illustrations on sale, each item will be priced at £40 and available on a first-come-first-served basis.
