TV star and passionate music fan
Join Asha Gill to discover and celebrate music in Britain. From pop festivals, to clubs and pubs, she’ll tell you where to hear music of every kind all across the UK.
TV presenter Asha Gill is crazy about music and she loves that pop is in the soul of culture in the UK. As she says, you can’t go far in Britain without finding a venue for great live music. See the biggest names at venues like the Royal Albert Hall in London, discover new bands at cool small spots like King Tut’s in Glasgow or simply soak up the sounds of a thousand local bands in Britain’s diverse pubs and clubs. And don’t forget about our hundreds of music festivals, from the enormous Glastonbury to smaller celebrations of everything from folk to funk.
Music is a living part of Britain's cities and this has helped shape the identity and attitudes of countless UK bands. Discover the story of the biggest band of all time – the Beatles – in their hometown of Liverpool, cruise the funky venues of Manchester, home of the Happy Mondays, New Order and the Stone Roses or explore the cutting-edge London music scene to find out why in Asha’s words, music ‘tells a story of Britain’.
