Equality and Diversity

FixTheMusic is committed to promoting equality and diversity in its activities, processes and culture.

We welcome enquiries for musicians for civil partnership ceremonies and same-sex marriages.

With regard to the hiring of musicians by clients, we will challenge discrimination based on age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.

Our selection process for musicians listed on the website is based purely on choosing the best musicians who have a reputation for being highly professional and reliable. We do not discriminate in any other way in this area.

Civil Partnerships and Same-Sex Marriage in the UK

Our site is primarily used by couples booking bands and musicians for their weddings or civil Partnerships. Here is some information about the status of civil Partnerships and same-sex marriage in the UK:

The Civil Partnership Act 2004 came into force on 5 December 2005 and allowed partnerships to be registered from 21 December 2005.

The legislation to allow same-sex marriage in England and Wales was passed by the UK Parliament in July 2013 and came into force on 13 March 2014, and the first same-sex marriages took place on 29 March 2014.

Legislation to allow same-sex marriage in Scotland was passed by the Scottish Parliament in February 2014 and took effect on 16 December 2014.

Same-sex weddings continue to be blocked in Northern Ireland by the Democratic Unionist Party. To this end, we at FixTheMusic have signed the petition to end the veto on Marriage Equality in Northern Ireland.
