The Magic Garden 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 of challenges we faced due to Covid 19 crisis.

1- What Magic Garden means to people

The Magic Garden is one of London’s rarest grass roots venues, where thousands of music lovers enjoy the magic of a festival right here in the heart of Battersea.

 

Keeping grassroots music alive for the future has been a historical challenge and one that our founder Connor Earley has been committed to since 1996……For nearly 12 years Magic Garden has supported thousands of performing artist from across the world, we have been dedicated to inclusion of all cultures and communities…..a platform where raw and grassroots talent have had an outlet and a pathway to take to the stage!

2 What are we are fundraising for?

Keep the venue alive, get geared up for streaming concerts, help generate income for artists

 Like so many venues, we are faced with challenging times, however we are motivated and driven towards reopening our doors over the coming year. Our focus now is for our community of grass roots artists who depend on performing live on our stage to survive, as well as follow their dreams. Following your heart and passion as an artist comes with uncertainty, however now more than ever performers futures and income is at its most insecure and so we are asking for your help!

 

Now, with the doors closed and restrictions infringing on the future of the Magic Garden – we have taken steps to ensure YOU don’t miss out and our artists can continue doing what they love best – we are streaming LIVE to your homes. Wherever you are, whatever restrictions are imposed upon us, our goal is to ensure the Magic Garden remains alive and open for business.

 

This is not simply to give YOU access to the magical performances we have the privilege to offer, but this also means we will continue to support the careers and futures of some 5,000 performing artist who come through our doors every year and who have so much to share.

3 Why should people give their money to us 

Grassroots venues are becoming extinct, they have been slowly disappearing over the last 20 years!

 The Magic Garden crew is one of the very few grassroots live music venues left who are dedicated to keeping live and independent music alive. The Magic Garden provides a platform for unsigned artists with a huge diversity of acts who perform on our stage.
