Trinity 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 whilst we remain closed the bills keep coming. Venues like ours run week to week in terms of cash flow. Everyone gets paid but there is very little left at the end of the week. Having already been closed now for 5 weeks the pot of money we have is coming to an end.
We are under immense pressure from our Landlords now to cough up rent. This is our single biggest overhead. That on top of having to keep the power on (without refrigeration our cellar stock is under threat), insurance, licences as well as allow the partners some income to eat and pay their bills things are getting tricky to say the least.
Your donations will be used to keep the landlord at bay, pay the essential bills that we can't stop and allow the core members of staff some income so that they can live until we get open. Whilst the majority of part-time staff are furloughed the partners have no income whatsoever. We also don't qualify for Government funding as our business rates are above the threshold required to get a grant.
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.
