Our capital intensive project, formed pre-pandemic, has been severely hit. We're looking to come out stronger and ready to pick up again!

by The Artful Dodgems in Cambridge, England, United Kingdom

The Artful Dodgems are a new company specialising in restoring vintage structures and filling them with new life, as arts and entertainment venues. We aim to create interesting and dynamic spaces for all types of event, with an emphasis on originality, community and innovativeness.

We currently own a 1963 Supercar Dodgems track which has been fully restored apart from the floor. We would like to install a wooden floor for future bookings as a roller disco, an outdoor ballroom, and wedding venue.

We aim to increase our collection through purchase of other classic structures. There are many on the market, rotting away in showmen's yards. We want to rescue them and bring them to life, making fresh, exciting and quirky venues for the public to enjoy, both as customers and as potential curators.

Other major capital investments we will need to make are transport (HGV to avoid continual hire), warehouse tenancy (we currently receive a favourable Covid-19 deal from our very generous landlord), and marketing.

Having made initial investments just weeks before the pandemic, we are in need of another injection to help us come out the other side with a new lease of life!
