Y Llew Coch - Mach is part of a national initiative launched by the MVT to prevent the permanent closure of music venues most at risk due to the crisis.
With the current situation times are very uncertain and we are doing everything we can to keep our great venue and home going. When we can open again we want to be here for you. So many venues are being lost and we don't want to be another statistic.
We have bills to pay but as well as that we have to replace some of the sound system and the outside stage covering. We have a growing reputation as a leading live music venue. People travel from all over for our gigs, major bands are now adding us to the tour planning. We are more than this, we are a major part of the local community. A place to meet, eat, relax and enjoy each others company. Our memorabilia collection includes some very rare Motorhead items, Iron Maiden, Rush, The Prodigy and so much.
Bands who have played or are booked to play include. Saxon (ODS), Kill 2 This, Anvil, The Quireboys, Dubwar, GBH, Peter & the test tube babies, Janus Stark, Discharge, Kubris Recall the remains, Dawn Sandals and many more.....
Why are we crowdfunding?
Our music venue risks permanent closure because…. Of the current climate and the mounting bills.
Your donations will be used to… Paying some bills and also improving the sound system, the garden area and keeping or home from closing and becoming another victim of the pandemic.
About Y Llew Coch - Mach (Red Lion)
We have taken years of gig going, working with bands, festivals and venues and put it all into our own. We pride ourselves in looking after the bands from the moment they arrive until they leave. The same for everyone that comes to our venue, it's all about making sure everyone has a great time.
Our in-house backline and sound system is available for all. Our bands list is ever growing and our reputation is growing day by day. We love our venue and our home and are fighting tooth and nail to be here after everything gets back to normal. As you all know live music and entertainment are vital for wellbeing and give us all an escape. Our comedy night do the same. It's so important we and the other venues are here for you. We miss our customers and the atmosphere we all create together.

About Save Our Venues - The Red List
During the last 8 months, Music Venue Trust and Crowdfunder have worked together to prevent the closure of hundreds of grassroots music venues. With no end to the crisis in sight, we are now refocusing that work to spotlight those venues under most imminent threat of permanent closure. The #SaveOurVenues Red List highlights the grassroots music venues at most risk.
We’ve checked all the available funding, financial support, furlough schemes, business support for these venues, and what is on offer is not enough to prevent them being lost. These venues are on the Critical List and need your help.
These grassroots venues play a crucial role in the development of British music, nurturing local talent, providing a platform for artists to build their careers and develop their music and their performance skills. These venues also play a vital role in the cultural and economic vibrancy of any village, town or city.
