The Blue Bell is part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues.
Our venue faces possible closure like many others because without trade or income we will not be able cover ongoing costs such as rent, insurance, utilities, security, wages and maintenance.
There will also be significant initial costs to reopen at whatever point in the future we’re able to do so. If that reopen is anytime beyond the summer season our situation will be even more precarious.
Your donations will be used to carry some of the weight of those costs and if possible contribute to some of the little venue improvement projects that we’re already working on while we’re closed!
If we can hold this wonderful space for you all until that magic moment of the lockdown lifting just imagine how exciting it will be to welcome you all back for super gigs and great vibes! Yay!
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.
