The Zanzibar is part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues.
Due to government sanctions around Covid-19, one of the longest standing grassroots music venues, has closed its doors. Really sad times for everyone around the world now and the music and hospitality industry have been hit the hardest.
We are in the dark with when we are allowed to open but we are expecting to be late July/early August. We will need the extra financial support to allow us to keep our booking system in place and keep marketing The Zanzibar.
We are proud to have partnered with the Music Venue Trust for this campaign, as I am sure all venues across the country are.
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.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
