Help Save Hootananny!


raised in 134 days



Help Hootananny raise money to help us get through this difficult time when we are unable to open as a music venue due to Covid19.

New stretch target

Every £19,000 raised will help us cover the costs of the venue for 1 month. 

Hootananny's doors are shut and we are facing the very difficult challenge of trying to survive whilst being unable to operate as a live music venue.

We have to pay £19K a month in running costs of the venue whilst it's shut. We have lost over £60K since the start of lockdown. 

We're an independent family run community music venue without cash reserves and no shareholders, so for us this is a devastating blow.

Hootananny's ethos has always been about providing a space for music and people from different communities and cultures, and being able to offer a space to showcase music which is often underrepresented. 

Hoots supports the livelihood of 120 people every week including bar staff, musicians, DJs, promoters, security, food operators, sound engineers, lighting engineers, cleaners & more.

We will open as a vastly reduced capacity pub with social distancing, but that will not cover our costs. 

We don't currently know when we will be able to get back to full capacity, some are expecting it could be 6 months or more. 

At this point we're trying to get funding from every source possible, but we're now asking for your support. If you can, please help us to save our beloved grassroots venue and community.

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 our Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.

Let's make 'Help Save Hootananny!' happen
