Dreadnoughtrock is part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues. Without this vital support direct from the Music Venue Trust that has already helped save many venues including our own, all who are the life blood of live music throughout the country. 

As Scotland's Longest Running Rock club spanning 48 years we have seen our way through the rollercoaster of life till now. We still aim to be the hub for rock music and live music in West Lothian through all that has been thrown at us in recent months and what ever is still to come. 

Live music has always been at the heart of things from the early days and even more so in the last decade that has gone hand in hand with a damn good rocking into the wee hours every single weekend at the legendary Rock Club. 

Helping to develop and support new local talent, bring internationally renowned bands and artists that many could only dream about seeing right to their doorstep along with some top covers and tribute bands has made the Dreadnoughtrock West Lothian's top live music venue coupled to the longest running rock club in the land along with your support and attendance.

The pause in our normal proceedings and way of life has been extremely difficult. We really miss what we do best and all those who those who share our passion. Opening as a temporary late bar in recent months has helped support ourselves also enabling you still enjoy a night out in the safest environment possible in the most challenging of times but sadly with more and more restrictions being placed upon on us recently has forced us to pause things temporarily once again. 

As a result it now requires the biggest ask ever and for a helping hand with this crowdfunding page in conjunction with The Music Venue Trust. 

We don't know exactly how long it will be until Live Music and Rock Club action can return fully. Although we have had some vital stability live music funding support recently, it will only go so far to cover the last 6 months and the months ahead also we are just learning that the club won't be eligible to apply for any promised support for the nightclub. 

This amazing story will continue with your support and with the Big 50 just around the corner is one hell of a party we all don't want to miss out on.  

Your support no matter how much or little will be greatly appreciated in keeping the story going a good bit longer.

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.

If you also wish to donate to The Music Venue Trust directly right now you can 

Take care and thank you in advance from all the Rock Crew.
