by The Stables MK in Wavendon, England, United Kingdom

The Stables is part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues. 

Due to the lockdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic there are no artists on our stages, no customers enjoying live music and no young people participating in our music- making sessions.

The Stables is marking its 50th birthday this year and we are heart-broken that we have had to postpone over 200 events.  As a registered charity we aim to reach the widest range of people with music in all its diversity and we normally present over 400 gigs and over 200 learning and participation sessions each year.  We also produce and present a number of festivals and special events including IF: Milton Keynes International Festival.

Now, we need your help!

Your donations will be used to help us cover our essential costs to maintain a skeleton staff rescheduling and promoting shows, dealing with customer enquiries, maintaining our facilities and planning for the future to ensure we can reopen as soon as we can.

We are also acutely aware that many other venues across the country are in difficulty and that without help now the national network that enables artists to tour and develop their fan base may disappear. So, if we hit our target, and we can help prevent the closure of our venue, everything above the amount we raise will be donated to the Music Venue Trust GMV Crisis Fund to protect other venues just like ours, right across the country.

So, if you can, please give us a gift for our birthday and help us to bring you the best in live music for decades to come.  Thank you!
