Foodhall is many things for many people, but one big things it's been over the years is a place to let your hair down with some of the best people in town.
Over the last 18 months we haven't been able to do that. But we're SO CLOSE to being able to once again - as soon as we pay up for the licences we need to host public events and play music in our new space.
The total cost of these, plus a final bit of DIY to get the space looking as lovely as it needs to be for you lovely people, is around £2000 - sadly money we just don't have after a year and a half of emptying our coffers to support the people of Sheffield through the pandemic, and moving into our lovely new building.
It would be SUCH a shame if we couldn't start having parties really soon, now that so many of Sheffield's amazing little venues are opening around us. We want to join that crowd! We want Lates to come back bigger and spangly-er than ever before. We want people to use this venue to host gigs, plays, performance art and much more. But to do that we have to pay The Man for the use of recorded music, to host live music for the general public and to operate "out of hours".
If you are able to contribute, think of it as attending a Party of the Mind; you're invited to pay for a ticket and imagine all the amazing parties about to happen - as soon as we hit our target of £2000.
And it doesn't have to stop at £2000! Any extra money we make from this crowdfunder will go directly back into the work we do to tackle food insecurity, social isolation and food waste - keeping the kitchen stocked up, helping with other building work so we can open up for more activities sooner, and supporting our community members to make their ideas for branch projects come to life. So please keep giving if you're able to!
Thank you so much for supporting Foodhall - now, in the future and throughout these challenging few years. We're all here for each other, forever, together :)
