Fife Street Club 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…. We were a new club, only opened in May 2019. We haven’t been able to save enough money to carry us through the lockdown. We are the largest pinball arcade in Europe, the club is historically significant as it was the first venue that the late great performer Larry Grayson ever performed. We have live music here every week and have fought tooth and nail for extended hours which were granted in January, we cater for all genres of music
Your donations will be used to keep paying the rent and bills of the venue which is also our living accommodation, we won’t just lose our venue but our home as we have zero income. Having never drawn a wage we don’t qualify for any furlough etc.
We also have a permanently open stage where anyone off the street can use any of the many guitars we have provided, drums, back line and even 32 track recording at any time we are open. We are here as a rehearsal space for bands too.
We are an LGBT+ friendly venue and want to develop this too to be the official LGBT+ club for Nuneaton and Warwickshire, the Manager is a trans woman, Courtney and they also host the monthly local Munch.
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.
