Lets Make Salisbury Great Again

Not quite
Unfortunately this project was not successful.

To generate capital to create in an unused building a new community centred café & club like the @home that came before.

by Let's Make Salisbury Great Again in Salisbury, England, United Kingdom

One year ago I opened @home in Salisbury and took a huge leap of faith.

Last week it was unjustly closed. (Council politics, not worth mentioning, you couldn't write it!)

What is @home? @home is a place that you can visit at anytime and there will ALWAYS be something going on, interactivity, inclusion and escapism. Imagine a festival in a building. Live entertainment in the form of trapeze to comedy. Mental Health live TedTalks, under 18s events and spaces, salsa lessons, tarot readings, cocktails, coffee - we've got it all going on baby, and we're too young to die!

Since then...

I have been overwhelmed with messages and have come up with a plan.

The amazing response received to @home and its closure has spurred me on to give the city one last push. I’m giving it my full attention until September to manifest something bigger and better but still keeping all the @home gems. But I can’t do it on my own, I admit now, I am not wonderwoman. (yet)

So my ideal property for @home last year was the old lloyd’s pharmacy on Blue Boar row but Mydlleton and Major laughed me out of the viewing. Wouldn’t it be amazing if I now got it? It is owned by Salisbury City Council and Annie Childs is fully aware that I have my eyes on it. 

The place is HUGE and has so so much potential.

Because quite frankly, no one is asking and no one is doing… this could be a breed of a whole new culture amongst cities like ours, LETS MAKE HEADLINES.

CROWDFUNDER We need to raise capital, that’s obvious so Ive made a project with various rewards, shareholder, memberships, free events etc and a Depop store to buy hats, t-shirts and stickers to support the cause.
