The Railway Oakham 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 EI Publican Partnerships has decided to defer payment of rent, rather than cancel any rent due, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Coupling this with the ongoing costs for utilities and re-stocking, etc, could see us facing serious financial hardship, when the lockdown is lifted.

Subsequently, when we re-open, we'll be facing an outstanding rent bill equaling approximately £526 for every week we've been closed.

Your donations will be used to help to pay this rent bill, continue trading and carry on bringing you the excellent live music that we've become to known for.

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.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see our Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
