The Waiting Room is part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues.
Our venue faces closure because of the devastating impact of COVID-19 across the live music industry. A prolonged nationwide lock down will leave The Waiting Room and its related workforce in a potentially perilous position.
Your donations will be used to go towards helping to provide much needed support to those working behind the scenes who have sadly fallen through the cracks of the government's current financial assistance packages.
If we hit our target, and we can prevent the closure of our venue, everything above the amount we need will be donated to the Music Venue Trust GMV Crisis Fund to protect other venues just like ours, right across the country.
