Why the Subs need your support
The Sub Rooms has been run as a charity by the Stroud Subscription Rooms Trust since the District Council gave up ownership a few years ago. In that time, the team (with the help of some grants made specifically for this building work) have been working round the clock to make the Subs an exciting new venue for the centre of town - and we can't wait to share all these changes with you.
However, the doors of the Sub Rooms have been closed for almost 18 months now - and under current regulations cultural venues such as ours are slow to reopen and only with tight restrictions in place. In recent times we have also had to close suddenly and cancel our events when a case of Covid is detected.
The Subs relies on daily visitors and ticket sales and we are therefore struggling to generate sufficient regular income during this time to cover our overheads.
That is why the Subs has launched this Crowdfunder. We need your support to keep going for the next few months.
With your help we can finish the improvements to the venue so that you can enjoy all the new developments safely and comfortably - and so that we can continue to cover our monthly overheads. That way the Subs will be here for our children and many more generations to come. We also want to continue to support community events and concessions, work and training placements and collaborate with our many creative partners here in Stroud.
Behind the scenes, with the help of some amazing building-work grants, we've been working hard to get things ready for you - but we need your help to pay for running costs to get through the next few months!
We have a really exciting programme planned - but we need your help to make sure it can go ahead!
