The Troubadour is part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues.
The Troubadour in London faces closure because we have had to stop all operations of our Independent Grassroots Music Venue Established in 1954 due to the Covid-19 epidemic and once we are able to reopen it will be quite a bumpy road for us as you can't sing, drink and eat wearing a mask (but of course our bartenders, severs, chefs and non-singing musicians will be wearing them!) We are not a behemoth chain and we are the artistic & musical cornerstone of our historic neighborhood in London.
Your donations will be used to continue the legacy of The Troubadour (Come on guys - we are independent and have been here since 1954), these donations will allow for us to continue employment to our bohemian family of employees and musicians and pay our rent as we navigate this uncharted territory. Everyone has a story about The Troubadour so please don't let our story end now.
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.
