Lockdown Presents was a social enterprise run by Steffen Hoyemsvoll and Simone Girardeau during the COVID-19 pandemic from April 2020 to March 2022.
It was 100% volunteer run and the first website of its kind to allow music lovers to instantly book in with artists for remote musical performances via Zoom.
It generated income for musicians during a tricky time for the arts and all profits went to three charities, AgeUK, Mind, and Refuge.
"We've had a great run! Performed just shy of 1,000 gigs (ok fine, 722 doesn't have the same ring to it), raised over £5k for charity and created more than £60k in paid work for musicians during a difficult time for the arts."- Steffen H. in our final newsletter - Feb 2022 -
