Alexander's Live is part of a national initiative called #saveourvenues, launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues. 

We are a leading venue in music, arts and culture based in Chester, which is now closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The venue is a small independently owned business and now faces permanent closure due to a lack of funds to keep the business surviving from day to day.

Funds raised through this Crowdfund will be used in the immediate term to pay ongoing costs that continue to mount up and allow us to complete ongoing crucial maintenance as well. This will ensure the business remains viable for the future and remove the threat of closure.

Alexander’s Live has been described as a being the “the heart of the community” by Chris Matheson, our local MP, and we will do all we can to continue to be here offering a stage for people’s passions for years to come. Your support today really will help us in our fight for survival and ensure that one of Chester’s main hubs of cultural activity stands strong fro years to come.

Generosity shown by people already is extremely overwhelming and we cannot say thank you enough. We hope that you all can enjoy some entertainment through this exciting programme of online activity and continue to support us. 

All funds raised over and above our target will be donated straight to the Music Venue Trust’s Crisis fund which will, in turn, support and stop the closure of other grassroots music venues across the county. It is our collective aim to ensure not one venue is closed due to this pandemic and with your support we truly believe we can achieve this."
