Fuel Rock Club 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 whilst we are unable to trade, there are substantial costs involved to ensure the business remains viable and ready to rock as soon as it is safe to do so.
We are grateful for the support of our landlord, many of our commercial partners, as well as the Welsh Government's Creative Wales office.
We are also using the UK Government's furlough scheme to ensure that as many of our staff as possible retain their jobs.
We have also been humbled by the huge amount of online merchandise sales we have received, as well as the response to our compilation album, "The Rockdown".
However, to ensure that we return stronger than ever, we are asking for your help in ensuring that we can continue to give opportunities to artists, promoters, technicians and well.....anybody that likes to ROCK AND ROLL!
Please be assured that we are fully aware that this is an extremely difficult time for everyone, and we fully appreciate that many of our friends and customers are experiencing financial difficulties.
However, we want to make sure that Fuel returns stronger than ever and need your help to achieve this.
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.
