The Black Heart is in danger of permanent closure, but we're not going down without a fight. We need your help to keep the dream alive.

We're still collecting donations

On the 23rd March 2021 we'd raised £151,099 with 4150 supporters in 57 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

FRIENDS, WE ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE.
We’ve spent a year doing everything to adapt our lives and our business to this awful pandemic but we can go no further. We need to raise at least £150,000 by the end of March 2021 or it could be over. But...

  • We are not going down like this.
  • We’re launching the #savetheblackheart campaign.
  • You can help!

WE’RE MORE THAN A BAR.
The Black Heart is an integral part of the UK underground heavy music scene and international touring circuit. We are a host venue for festivals such as Desertfest, Incineration Fest and Camden Rocks. The list of incredible bands that have played in our venue includes Idles, The Bronx, Lightning Bolt, Every Time I Die, Venom Prison, Red Fang, Crowbar and YOB – to name just a few. Our aftershow parties, DJ nights and Halloween bashes are legendary. You were probably at some of these!

WE HAVE HAD ZERO HELP FROM THE GOVERNMENT OR OUR LANDLORDS.
We were closed for months only to reopen at less than half our capacity and with hardcore restrictions. We still managed to successfully put on 11 socially distanced gigs and 8 live streams, but it was not enough to keep us going. We are and always have been an independently owned venue and we are proud to say we’ve retained all of our staff because we’re a family.

#SAVETHEBLACKHEART – AMAZING PRIZE DRAWS
We’ve got prizes! When you support our Crowdfunder campaign, you’ll have the opportunity to win something – thanks to the unwavering support of our friends and extended community, who have donated some incredible things.

Every few weeks we’ll be releasing new prizes, and there are some seriously awesome ones up for grabs! We’ve had prizes donated by loads of local and international bands, as well as Old Empire, Brooklyn Brewery, tattoo artists, We Are Beer festival, Ritual Records, Orange Amps, Desertscene, Mikkeller and many more. Images of prizes can be found on our social pages. 

Our prize draws are priced to cover all budgets – and every penny counts! Entering is easy – simply donate to the prize you’re keen to win and you will be entered into that draw. Of course if nothing tickles your fancy but you'd still like to donate, you absolutely can.

You can help save the Black Heart and win amazing prizes in the process. 

If it works, our beloved venue will survive, and we’ll all celebrate together when this is all over. It’s a win-win. 

THE FUTURE IS LOUD AND HEAVY BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW.
If this massive joint effort is successful, then trust us, we’ll be looking at an incredibly heavy gig calendar in 2021–2022. A lot of you reading this are probably booked to play or have bought tickets already, and we thank you from the bottom of our (black) hearts, but WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW! 

We love you, we miss you, and we cannot wait to reopen and see you all again soon.

Love,
The Black Heart
