Venue38 is part of a national initiative launched by the MVT to prevent the permanent closure of music venues most at risk due to the crisis.
Music Venue Trust (MVT) has announced a new campaign #saveourvenues, in response to the continued economic threat to over 500 Grassroots Music Venues throughout the UK. #SaveOurVenues, formally known as the GMV Crisis Fund, is aimed at artists, music fans and the wider music industry and has raised over £182,000 thanks to significant donations from Amazon Music, SJM, a number of high-profile artists and music fans throughout the UK.
#SaveOurVenues fund will form part of a wider initiative that will see artists raising money for individual venues with whom they have a personal connection. Artists are being encouraged to choose a venue that is currently in crisis from an interactive map and dropdown menu, which can be found on the campaign website at www.saveourvenues.co.uk. Those artists will then be given the tools and guidance to perform an ‘at home’ gig in support of that particular venue. Each venue will have their own crowd funding page with a clear target of the funds it needs to raise to stay afloat throughout this difficult period. Once a target is reached any excess revenue will go to the central #SaveOurVenues fund to help the wider grassroots music venue community.
Why are we crowdfunding?
Our music venue risks permanent closure because we haven't been accepted for any of the funding options made available and as we haven't been allowed to trade since March, we now find ourselves in serious financial difficulty.
Your donations will be used to help cover the costs of keeping the Venue viable until we are allowed to let the music play.
