Brighter music moments

We’ve got some big news and we think you’re going to like the sound of it!

Music is the soundtrack to everyone’s lives, and it’s something that’s in Virgin’s DNA – Virgin Records started out as a mail-order vinyl service to expose young people to non-commercial music that wasn’t getting played on the radio and Richard Branson signed Sex Pistols and the Rolling Stones (plus loads more big names) back in the day. That’s why we’re so excited to return to our roots and bring music and money together in a way that only Virgin Money really can.

New music partnerships

To show how committed we are to our move into music, we’ve become official partners with two of the most iconic live music venues in the world; London’s The O2 and The SSE Hydro in Glasgow. Everyone who’s anyone dreams of playing on these stages during their career – it’s a sure sign you’ve made it to the top, and we’re very proud of these partnerships.

As part of the sponsorship we are creating unique VIP entertainment spaces in both The O2 and The SSE Hydro plus creating ‘money can’t buy’ experiences at the venues which will be available exclusively to Virgin Money customers.

We’re working with some of the best in the business and have teamed up with key figures from the music industry to plan something very exciting but top secret for now! Here’s a teaser – it involves identifying, supporting and amplifying the best British music of tomorrow and offering incredible opportunities to up and coming talent. Virgin Money will provide funding and financial advice, chances to perform and access to our platforms and channels to help them reach new heights…we’ll be revealing all very soon so keep your eyes peeled!


Virgin Money Stores

We’ve also been busy in our Stores. We’ve got newly revitalized Virgin Money Stores in Birmingham, London and Manchester (with more to come soon!). These vibrant hubs have been designed to offer more than you’d expect from your typical bank and we’re confident they will shake things up on the UK high-street. Our flagship stores will be ‘bank by day, music venue by night’ and we’ll continue to provide you with co-working spaces for you to come and settle into, a range of events throughout the year and content-creation studios. If you’re not local to The O2 or The SSE Hydro, don’t worry – we’ll be bringing some amazing talent to our stores across the UK in the next few months.

So, lots more to come – get ready to ‘Say Hello to Brighter Money’ with us!
