Pulling the music publisher community together is a role that the MPA takes seriously. Our regular social events include:

MPA Pub Socials

An informal gathering for MPA members and invited guests to meet in the pub, share a drink or two and make friends. Our Pub Socials take place four times a year and coincide with the MPA Induction Course so that newcomers can find out first-hand what makes our sector tick.

At a beautiful Victorian pub in the heart of Soho, the MPA Pub Social had a welcoming and warming atmosphere. It was fantastic to see a vibrant mix of veteran members and newcomers mingling, with the MPA team making sure that everyone had a drink and met someone new. The night had a great sense of community!” Levi Deeble  (Rights Administrator, ‎Sentric Music & RTS 2017 recipient)


Each year we host two separate quizzes, one for Classical music and Pop music.

The MPA Christmas Lunch

More than just lunch. The MPA’s legendary end-of-year celebration is one of the most eagerly-anticipated and most loved dates in the music industry calendar, and an opportunity for everyone to unwind and celebrate with colleagues and friends.

Fast approaching its 60th year, the event regularly attracts around 900 guests – all of whom enjoy a grand three-course meal, speeches, and live entertainment. To ensure lots of laughs for this momentous occasion we seek out the best comedy entertainment year after years such as Abandoman, Stephen K Amos, Hal Cruttenden, Andi Osho, Jen Brister.

Feel free to check out the PHOTOGRAPHS from 2018!

MPA Summer Party

The MPA hosts an annual MPA Summer Party which takes place straight after it’s AGM.  Welcoming 400 members and industry to Kings Place in Kings Cross, the Summer Party is the perfect occasion for networking and enjoying a relaxed drink by the picturesque Regents Canal.  Please see highlights from 2018 below:
