The Tooth & Claw is part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues.
We appreciate all the messages of support from our customers. We love hearing that you really miss the place or that you cannot wait to come visit us again.
Our venue faces closure because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Even with the current support packages from government and help from our service suppliers without your help, it may not be enough to turn the lights back one once we are allowed to reopen.
Your donations will be used to help in the fight to make sure that when all this is over and done with The Tooth & Claw will be there to welcome you all back. Specifically the money raised would be used to best secure the continuity of business. We've worked with our Landlord and other service suppliers to negotiate a package that would allow us to return. Unfortunately in most cases this requires a continuing financial commitment. Clearly this is a struggle when we are unable to trade.
In all honesty without your help right now, the reality is there may not be a Tooth & Claw to come back to. That is why we are asking for your help now. If we hit our target, and we can help prevent the closure of your local Grassroots Music 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.
Stay safe folks.
Team Tooth & Claw.
