Since we launched our #DoorsOpen fundraiser in May, we have been overwhelmed by the support you've given - and encouraged, through some very difficult times, by the messages you've written, such as: "Conway Hall is a great venue and it holds wonderful events. May it long continue."
Our future is still uncertain but thanks to your kind and generous donations - and support from the Arts Council's Culture Recovery Fund - we are now out of immediate danger of closure, at least until April, and are able to end this Crowdunder campaign. We are already working to welcome limited audiences back into Conway Hall for certain events, in addition to our ongoing programme of online talks and livestreamed concerts.
However, some other independent venues across the UK are not so fortunate. The Music Venue Trust, who have provided invaluable advice and support to us, have identified 30 such venues under imminent threat of permanent closure. Their Red List highlights those at most risk that you might consider donating to individually - or to their overall #SaveOurVenues support fund:
MVT Red List
Of course, if you'd like to continue to support Conway Hall, we still welcome donations - large and small - and new members via our website: conwayhall.org.uk/donation
Once again, we'd like to say a huge thank you for donating to this Crowdfunder and look forward to welcoming you (back) to Conway Hall as soon as we're able and it is safe to do so.
