Following Heineken UKs insistence to continue charging us £2k p/w +VAT rent, we send out an SOS to the community to help ensure our survival

We're still collecting donations

On the 24th June 2020 we'd raised £6,061 with 249 supporters in 55 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Hello all, hope you are all well. As some of you may be aware our Freeholder Star Pubs (Heineken UK) is continuing to charge us £2k + VAT rent per week through the enforced lockdown. We have also fallen through the gaps of any state aid available. Whilst we can cover all the other costs of closure the rent presents an existential threat to The Railway Tavern as a business. This crowdfunder aims to help cover our rent through lockdown. We have also programmed a ticketed benefit party with a stellar line up of our dear friends and supporters. Our eternal thanks go to the performers who have all waived their fees.

Whilst the weekend event is unlikely to run when we first open it will happen as soon as safety permits. Luckily we are blessed with space at The Railway and opening with social distancing measures is achievable for us so we hope to see you all sooner rather than later. Obviously The Railway is not looking to profit and any funds raised beyond our rent bill will be donated to NHS charities. If our freeholder or the government change their position any excess money raised will go to NHS charities. 

We thank you for your support. Keep safe and we look forward to having a pint with you soon.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
