Space 289 is part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues.
Our venue is in an extremely difficult position with freelance staff to support, costs still to pay, and the likelihood of events happening this year extremely unlikely. We are trying to find new ways to survive through technical live stream services, but it takes time and investment.
Your donations will be used to help us support our committed freelance staff through the next few months and allow us to invest in equipment that will allow us to support ourselves through live stream services across, what is looking like, a full year with no events.
If we hit our target 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.
