I am sure you are aware, there is still a lot of uncertainty as to when we may have the opportunity to reopen and start running events and gigs again. Obviously we are continuing to take directives from the Government and we continue to wait until restrictions start to be lifted. Everyone in the 229 team have now been furloughed as we try and save costs where possible. This will give us the best chance to reopen and continue the business as before.
We still have a mountain of costs to absorb as you can imagine with a venue our size, so as part of the survival process, we have joined the Music Venue Trust’s nationwide ‘Crowdfund’ campaign to #SaveOurVenues and we are trying to get everyone behind it. We need all staff, artists, music fans & local communities to act together to prevent venues from permanently closing.
This is a link to our page, which gives a bit more of a background to our campaign. https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/save229london and not forgetting all profit made at 229, is ploughed back into the International Students House Charity.
Please take time to read our campaign and any support would be greatly appreciated.
