The Music Venue Trust has launched the crowdfunding campaign #saveourvenues to help independent music venues facing closure due to the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Trust mention that 556 grassroots venues are at imminent risk of permanent closure due to tight operating margins and the inability to open to custom during the lockdown.

At statement on the #saveourvenues website reads: “The situation is dire, government support has been exhausted, and it now falls to artists, music fans, local communities and the wider industry to take action

“Put bluntly, without these venues the opportunities for artists and audiences to connect in a meaningful way at a local level will simply disappear in a lot of cases. And if they go they will never come back.

“Please help us to help grassroots music venues to survive this unprecedented threat to their existence.”

Head to saveourvenues.co.uk for further details and the Crowdfunder page to donate.
