Women in music: with Rebecca Allen and Imelda May
Universal Music, the UK’s leading music company have partnered with the National Portrait Gallery for an exclusive insight into the music business with Rebecca Allen, President of Decca Records and singer-songwriter Imelda May, one of biggest-selling UK female artists of the year.
The discussion is aimed at anyone wanting to break into the music industry – on and off stage - and will include the opportunity to meet both Rebecca and Imelda.
The event forms part of the Mayor of London’s Sounds Like London festival, a celebration of the capital’s grassroots venues, up-and-coming talent and music heritage. In the year of the centenary of the women’s vote, Sounds Like London also highlights the important contribution made by women in the music industry.
It takes part during Rebel Women, the National Portrait Gallery’s year-long season of events in 2018 to mark the centenary of women gaining the vote in Britain.
