Thank all for your support since we closed in March. The love & donations you’ve given us has not only been amazing but without it we wouldn’t have made it this far. We have just received further great news that we have been incredibly fortunate to be given an emergency grant by The Arts Council, which has given us some breathing space for another 6 weeks to be able to plan how we reopen and continue to look and apply for further funding and support. We’d like to take this moment to thank everyone at The Arts Council, The DCMS, The Music Venue’s Trust and the NTIA for all their support and assistance to us and all the venues and those effected in our industry to help us through this.
We realise that with physical distancing in place we will be trading at 75% under our usual capacity, which means we risk making a loss to open, but whilst we are still paying rent it’s a much more positive thing for us to do than remain closed. We want to be able to try and get our business back up and running so we can bring our staff back to work before the furlough scheme ends. We also want to being our amazing team of freelance staff & performers back to do what they love, which is creating shows, for you our incredible audience to comeback to – safely.
