|Series title:||Finance Department: Contemporary Music Network Files, 1974-1987|
The Contemporary Music Network was founded by Annette Morreau in 1971 and was initially regarded as an experimental scheme to repeat performances of contemporary music in centres throughout Britain. Initial success later led to considerable expansion and development of the scheme.
These files were found amongst the finance records in wrappers marked CMN Box A-J. They contain information about the Contemporary Music Network under the following headings: Concert Returns, 1974-1976; Performance Reports and Groups Toured, 1985-1986; Press and Publicity, 1970s, 1980-1987; Promoters and RAAs [Regional Arts Associations], 1980-1984; and Selection Committee, Performance Reports, Sponsored Evenings and Cancelled Tours, 1986-1987.
See also series ACGB/91, which contains the main bulk of Contemporary Music Network files found amongst the records of the Touring Department. Series ACGB/100 contains the Touring Department's policy and information records and many of these files are also related to the CMN scheme.
