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

MPA Pub Socials

A 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.


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

MPA Presents in Partnership with PRS Foundation:

A regular showcase event, featuring unsigned acts from around the UK who have been championed through PRS for Music Foundation’s Talent Development Partners. Highlights in 2016 included performances from hotly-tipped acts like L U M E N, Immy Williams, Shields, Estée Blue, Calva Louise, CaStLeS.

The MPA Christmas Lunch:

More than just a 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 year such as Abandoman, Stephen K Amos, Hal Cruttenden and Andi Osho.
