Our venue faces closure, because of the devastating impact the COVID-19 crisis is having across the wider economy, and on the hospitality sector in particular. Even when the lockdown ends, bars and venues will be forced to operate under strict 'social distancing' rules, perhaps operating a only 20-25% of capacity, which is simply uneconomical for the majority of businesses.
Aces will be celebrating it's 10th year trading in June, we hope to reopen our doors and acknowledge this milestone with all our fantastic customers that have kept us trading for a decade.
What you can do to help
If you've ever enjoyed our live events, consider giving the price of a ticket, or a round of drinks, every amount, no matter how small, will help us keep the doors open.
Your donations will be used to pay rent, bills and other operating costs, which still need to be paid whilst we are closed and not earning any revenue, as well as provide additional financial support to our currently furloughed staff.
If we hit our target, and we can prevent the closure of our venue, everything above our target will be donated to the Music Venue Trust GMV Crisis Fund to help protect other venues just like ours, right across the country.
