Tony Arthy of Vans Music offered his input on the new partnership with BIMM London, saying:

“Vans has always been committed to supporting new music and creative activity generally, so when the option came up to work with BIMM, we jumped at the chance. We’re really excited to embark on this unique partnership and see what great stuff comes out of it.”

BIMM London maintains close partnerships with some of the music industry’s biggest musical instrument brands, so the estates team at the campus were incredibly pleased to learn of our brand-new partnership with Vans, as Steve Moulin, Deputy Head of Estates & Facilities at BIMM London explained.

“We’re always in search of new and exciting brand partnerships for BIMM London and as our first with a non-musical equipment company, they don’t come more exciting than iconic lifestyle brand, Vans.”

He continued: “With their roots firmly embedded in music culture and their London venue, House of Vans marking their dedication to the music scene as unwavering, it was a very natural fit.”
