Why are we crowdfunding?

Our music venue risks permanent closure because…. we have not been able to do any live music or club nights since March and have no money left to keep us going.

Your donations will be used to pay essential bills to stop our closure

Alchemy is more than just a venue in six years it has become a community institution we have amazing live music we help promoters by hosting meet and greets with artistes. Alchemy supports and works with young artistes through our studio providing showcase events and open mic nights we also mentor and educate.

Our club nights are legendary a mixture of musical genres from Jungle through to Grime not forgetting Reggae R&B and sweet soul music we host nights for all age groups a commercial nightclub we are not! We are the home of proper DJ's who have honed their craft. Our artistes try out mixes on the club nights and we always have live PA's - We are the only venue of this type left in South London and our enforced closure is affecting artistes, musicians, DJ's and promoters we want to be able to welcome everyone back asap!

We also cater for the community providing a venue for 9 nights (Caribbean wake) funerals, weddings and celebrations - we are reaching out for help, we know there are some good people out there who will help us survive...! and I thank you in advance

About Save Our Venues - The Red List

During the last 8 months, Music Venue Trust and Crowdfunder have worked together to prevent the closure of hundreds of grassroots music venues. With no end to the crisis in sight, we are now refocusing that work to spotlight those venues under most imminent threat of permanent closure. The #SaveOurVenues Red List highlights the grassroots music venues at most risk.

Right now.

We’ve checked all the available funding, financial support, furlough schemes, business support for these venues, and what is on offer is not enough to prevent them being lost. These 32 venues are on the Critical List and need your help.

These grassroots venues play a crucial role in the development of British music, nurturing local talent, providing a platform for artists to build their careers and develop their music and their performance skills. These venues also play a vital role in the cultural and economic vibrancy of any village, town or city.

Please donate, share this page widely and do what you can to help us to make sure our grassroots music venues survive this crisis.
