The Arden inn 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…. Well firstly the power companies are screwing us with bills to say we are closed they are sending bills 6 times over the usual amount, secondly the landlord is charging full rent and service charges from May on wards.
Your donations will be used to… keeping us in power and a business, stocking up for when we actually reopen, go towards bills from power company and rent to landlords also help toward the PRS bill that they will want paying once open.
We have never ever charged a fee to get in the pub even on New Years , as we know you would not pay it plus may not be able to afford it, being entertained free by some great bands and singers is more important, give all you guys something to look forward to every weekend, just come in drink and enjoy the music.
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.
