The Prince Albert is part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues.
Our venue faces closure because we can no longer operate until that lockdown is lifted. While we have moved our entire Spring program into the Autumn 2020, there is still a lot of uncertainty around when lockdown will be lifted and if we will make it that far. We anticipate and accept our sector will be one of the last to reopen but this will sadly put a significant amount of financial strain and pressure on the building.
To combat this we are now part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust, to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues. Your important donations will be used to help us survive through this difficult period of forced closure, as a result of Covid-19.
Your support will mean we will be able to open the doors once again to you lovely lot, to share a few pints and enjoy the best live music in town.
Please note, 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 many Thanks
All the Albert
