Following our own venue fundraiser, THE MOON is now taking part in a national campaign #saveourvenues launched by the Music Venue Trust, to help prevent the closure of 566 grassroots music venues like ourselves.
The Moon has already run a Crowdfunder for our venue, so we'll be donating 100% of money from this new fundraiser to the central emergency fund.
MUSICIANS would you like to help raise money by playing a live show at home and we'll stream it? Find out more on SaveOurVenues.co.uk - you can either choose a venue to support directly or donate to the central emergency fund.
WHY WE'RE SUPPORTING MUSIC VENUE TRUST'S EMERGENCY FUND - MVT has been liaising with government officials throughout this crisis, acting on our behalf, translating the minefield of information for businesses, hosting daily online meetings/talks, sourcing funding, appointing regional reps to make sure we're ok, and providing a space where all of us in the same boat can chat to each other. If you're able to, please help us ensure they can carry on this work after this is over.
THANKS FROM THE MOON - We'd like to thank everyone who donated to our initial venue campaign in March. Your money has gone towards supporting our staff, ensuring the venue will still be there after lockdown, and helping us reach our 3rd birthday! We'll be sending out rewards shortly.
We miss you all and can't wait to see you soon. Love, The Moon x
