The Hot Tin is taking part in a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues.
Our venue like many others face permanent closure as it's highly unlikely that for the foreseeable future we'll be able to re-open whilst still maintaining our accumulating, running costs.
To plug the temporary gap we now face, keep positive and survive, we need the support from those keen for us to re-open when the time comes.
Your kind donations will be used to help keep our staff, cover some of the The Hot Tin's ongoing losses and overheads and towards re-structuring for when we are finally able to open to full capacity.
If we hit our target and 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.
The Hot Tin's events are managed and operated by RouteStock CIC, a not-for-profit community interest company.
It's a former 1885 victorian tin church, that was built solely for its burgeoning neighbourhood in Faversham, Kent.
After 70 years of being closed to the community, The Hot Tin has been running as a café, arts and music venue for the past 18 months to entertain its local people and bring to the Tin, a diverse diaspora of people worldwide.
We're dedicated to putting on arts and music events and to bringing communities together from around the corner and around the world.
We’ll need to work quickly once we are able to open again, and your kind donations will provide support for our team (including our freelance staff who fall between the cracks of government help), artists and performances, so we can carry on keeping The Hot Tin a cultural hub that is accessible to all.
Like all who run venues, it's a labour of love. We know that times are strange and uncertain for us all and greatly appreciate any support no matter what you can give.
Lots of love and stay safe!
