BOOM is part of a national initiative launched by the MVT to prevent the permanent closure of music venues most at risk due to the crisis.
Crowdfunding will ensure the BOOM LEEDS music venue will be saved but also help keep our dedicated staff employed. You donation will contribute to ensuring the venue will survive and continue to be a home for grassroots music in Leeds.
WHY ARE WE CROWDFUNDING?
BOOM LEEDS is now on the brink of permanent closure and needs to Crowdfund to survive. In the absence of any income and being unable to open - the venue has accrued substantial debts that will force the venue into permanent closure.

ABOUT SAVE OUR VENUES - RED LIST!
During the last 8 months, Music Venue Trust and Crowdfunder have worked together to prevent the closure of hundreds of grassroots music venues. With no end to the crisis in sight, we are now refocusing that work to spotlight those venues under most imminent threat of permanent closure. The #SaveOurVenues Red List highlights the grassroots music venues at most risk.
We’ve checked all the available funding, financial support, furlough schemes, business support for these venues, and what is on offer is not enough to prevent them being lost. These 30 venues are on the Critical List and need your help.
These grassroots venues play a crucial role in the development of British music, nurturing local talent, providing a platform for artists to build their careers and develop their music and their performance skills. These venues also play a vital role in the cultural and economic vibrancy of any village, town or city.
