The Boot Inn 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 of being asked to close due to the COVID-19 crisis. While closed we are unable to continue to raise funds to maintain the venue and keep up payments on utilities and rent. the longer we have to stay closed the more uncertain our future becomes! While we support the need to beat this terrible virus the economic repercussions are detrimental to many grassroots music venues like ourselves!
Your donations will be used to continue to pay our regular utility bills and rent, including ensuring we maintain all the requirements we need to continue being a live music venue! and help cover vital refurbishments to make sure we are all set to open once the government announces a relaxation on the current lockdown regulations. We want to continue to support our local music scene and are dedicated to bringing you the best live music entertainment! Your help will means that we can continue to do 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.
