The Green Door Store and Rossi Bar are part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues.
Our dear Brightonians and friends from further afield,
We reach out to you, like many others, at this time which is proving to be unfathomable for music venues. We like all of our Venue friends have had to cease operating and close our doors for an unclear amount of time. In the interim we still have so many outgoings and no way of making money (we are working on this)!
We are unsure how long this closure will be for but what we can tell you is that we are going to fight our darn hardest to stay afloat in these troubling times.
We aren’t a company that like to ask for anything. In fact we have spent the last (nearly) 10 years being proudly Independent. We have survived up to this point without funding or support from anyone other than you, our loyal gig goers and musical creatives.
We are sorry, to ask this of you when we know you too are looking at sustaining yourselves through these unpredictable weeks, and we don’t ask lightly. But we do so we can open again, as soon as physically possible. With complete transparency, all of our shows for the next five months, for both our venues, have cancelled or been postponed. We are unsure whether this will continue through the coming months.
We are fundraising for £25,000 to help protect our venues and our staff through this period of closure. If we hit our target, and we can prevent the closure of our venue, everything above the amount we need will be donated to the Music Venue Trust GMV Crisis Fund to protect other venues just like ours, right across the country.
Stay safe and we’ll see you on the other side <3
