by Dryad Works in Sheffield, England, United Kingdom

We did it
On 31st March 2021 we successfully raised £40,307 with 264 supporters in 141 days

Dryad Works is one of 30 music venues identified by MVT (Music Venues Trust) as being most at risk of permanent closure due to the crisis.

CROWDFUNDER UPDATE 2021

What a crazy year 2020 was. The team here has been working so hard to fight through the year of all years. In a way, we’re also trying to forget it and work on what's important…THE HERE AND NOW! 

VzO7gADg0xJ2b1-nEi9NREmpv5_mQwTvidSgB0EjifDXXZLv8PKv0wuOeE96l9JsatYPq4xNbi0JhxfWc5Qp7Sd_iUHOxBAUtbhrNqJWZilsqh3Dk0oTvfv75AxQTqLeBUEwMSN6

We made it. It’s 2021! 

Without regurgitating too much of what's probably already fresh in everyone's minds we are a unique community of people that occupy a large warehouse in the beautiful forgotten hills of Parkwood Springs in Sheffield.

We created a one off DIY Grassroots Music Venue and we have over 15 different creative workspaces that range from fully kitted out Music Studios to fully stacked Sound Systems.

We haven't changed throughout all of this. We are still what we were before. But better. Stronger. More efficient. More SECURE.

That’s all thanks to YOU! 

This crowdfunder has given us the motivation, the want and need to stride further and keep doing what we do. It’s given us the voice and the security we needed so desperately having missed out on so much funding unlike so many other venues in Sheffield alone.

It’s the true community vibe that has and will shine through and that community vibe includes you. Together we’ve made a community, a base, a HQ, a place to be... a place to go!

It’s yours and with your help it's staying.

We are absolutely delighted to announce that we are also moving into the realms of…

DIGITAL PRODUCTION. 

Not only will we be putting on the best events & gatherings this city has seen when we come back from the restrictions but in the meantime we are also moving into Film, Photo & all things Digital Media and Production.

We have converted our current venue and warehouse into a dedicated Media & Production Studio. We can shoot Cinematic Film & Livestream in 4K. We can livestream and host your stream with over 500mb of Fibre internet speeds courtesy of a fresh install by Virgin Media. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. You literally haven't seen anything yet!

We are dedicated to being able to support and develop creative individuals and local talent no matter what the circumstances. Instead of leaving our warehouse empty we have been working tirelessly to bring it back to life after so many months cold, wet & damp.

We will be dropping a lot more information on this soon so keep your eyes peeled and if you're a local artist, creative or brand that needs some support getting out there on those digital waves get in touch and let's see how we can all move forward together.
