The global COVID-19 pandemic continues to create a very uncertain landscape for millions of British hospitality businesses, such as The Glad.
A buzzing place for musicians and locals alike, The Glad is an asset of community value. On the brink of closure in the past when it was threatened by demolition & redevelopment into flats, the locals signed a petition to save the pub (#savetheglad).
Our venue is one of hundreds currently at risk because of the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Sadly, the new tier 5 restrictions continue to put a significant amount of financial strain and pressure on our pub. Despite the government's support & furlough scheme, we'll need further support to cover our ongoing rental costs, which our landlord still demands of us during the time of closure.
Your donations will be used to cover the cost of rent for the next few months & fill the shortfall between the staff furlough scheme, and our actual monthly outgoings when closed.
