The Queens Hall Narberth is part of a national initiative launched by Music Venues Trust to prevent the closure of 100s of independent music venues.
It was with a very heavy heart we have closed our doors for the first time in over 60 years, but we are determined to re-open for our community as soon as we can.
We are working hard behind the scenes with the Music Venues Trust and other organisations to make this happen, but as each week passes, re-opening looks increasingly more difficult.
We have always been grateful for the ongoing support of our community but we are running out of means to keep the Old Girl ticking over. We really need your help.
In an effort to protect The Queens Hall, and the well-being of our staff, volunteers and Hall users, we have reached out to friends, family and our wonderful local community to offer some fantastic incentives for people who support this Crowdfunder.
We are very happy to announce a collaboration between The Queens Hall and Mat Price of Sursum Tattoo. Mat is an incredibly talented international tattoo artist and all-round decent guy. He has created this exclusive design and Jack, from Old Elton's Studio, will be hand-printing each Tee - We are extremely honoured to be working with them! Grab one while you can. Please choose your size from the drop-down menu at the on the checkout page - we can also do a 2XL, 3XL and 4XL size if needed - if you require a bigger size, please contact us before you pledge and we can sort it out for you.
Sizes available are: S (34/36") - M (38/40") - (L 42/44") - (XL 46/48") - (2XL 50/52") - (3XL 54/56") - (4XL 58/60")
The Music Venues Trust is also giving The Queens Hall 100% of the money donated from the Tee below to support our venue and the Save Our Venues campaign!
The Save Our Venues T-shirt is now available in sizes XS, Small, Medium, Large and XL and for every T-shirt sold, The Hall receives the whole £20 because MVT will cover the full costs of fulfilling the order.
That's right, MVT will take care of everything else; we get the money donated, you receive the T-Shirt directly from Music Venues Trust - (21 days delivery) - how awesome is that?!
If a Tee isn't your thing, we have designed an exclusive The Queens Hall logo cotton tote bag especially for the Crowdfunder. Super durable, super useful and super stylish (if we do say so ourselves!)
We have also been lucky enough to have a beautiful Narberth photo-collage donated to us by Lee Phillips of The Shed Project. Lee, who is an award-winning illustrator, created the photo-collage as part of a previous project in Oriel Q, the gallery situated on the top floor of The Queens Hall. The original print hangs on the wall next to the Main Hall entrance - there was an extremely limited run of theses prints the first time round, so grab your opportunity for one while you can!
Alongside this, we have have some beautiful posters from times past on account of our Memories of a Generation project. We are offering a limited run of A2 reproduction prints, touched up and printed on authentic 100gm uncoated paper - they are absolutely gorgeous and a small piece of history, when you pledge, let us know which one of the following you choose...
- Elton John A2 (unframed) - Deep Purple A2 (unframed)
- Chicken Shack A2 (unframed) - Simon Dupree A2 (unframed)
- Dave Dee, Dozy Beaky, Mich & Tich A2 (unframed)
Keep an eye on this page as further Rewards to be announced in the coming weeks! If you have any brilliant ideas for experiences or Rewards, or you would like to get involved, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Best wishes, stay safe & we will see you all soon

MORE INFO ON WHAT WE WILL DO WITH THE MONEY
Before Lockdown, our revenue came from ticket sales and room hire.This income has now completely stopped; 100% of the money raised will be used to help replace some of this income to pay our ongoing costs.
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.
