We aim to ensure the continuation of live music at the Royal Oak.

by Chris Powell in Bath, England, United Kingdom

Music features as a large part of the Royal Oak and we never charge for entry. We believe music should be accessible to as many people as possible, we have live music 3/4 times a week which can be any thing from BBC 2 folk award winners to  eleven piece death ma1590347949_43244984_1954770901251559_3518517554836406272_o.jpgriachi band from Norway. More often than not we lose money on our live music nights and sadly the reserve is now being used up to pay for bills while we are closed. As with many venues our insurance won't pay out and we still have bills and rent to pay.

We will use the money raised to insure the continuation of live music at the Oak.

The Royal Oak is part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues.

These venues are struggling because of ongoing costs and uncertainty about when they will be able to reopen, whilst also having no income coming in. Your donations will be used to cover ongoing expenses for the business and to help our staff where needed.

If we hit our target, everything above that will be donated to the Music Venue Trust GMV Crisis Fund to protect other venues just like ours, right across the country.

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.


This project offers rewards in return for your donation.
