This is not just our future, it’s yours. Help us keep the spirit of The Bunkhouse alive!
When the COVID lock downs first happened we were told it would be for 2 weeks, we crowdfunded for a very modest £2000 to help keep the lights on. That 2 weeks quickly became 6 months and at least a further 6 months until we will likely see a band grace our stage
Not ones to like begging for help, we buckled down, we adapted, we launched our now very popular bunkhouse burger menu, originally starting as a way for Kei, to help keep the power on it quickly grew to a point were we were able to keep all our staff in a job, and even take on some extra staff. However it was never going to be enough, a building this big running at such a limited capacity it was only every meant to keep us above water until we could do a gig again.
Every announcement the government makes makes gigs further and further away.
the governments funding never seems to reach us, we wait months and months to get enough funding to barely get by. Whilst companies a lot bigger than us get massive hand outs
We are now running on fumes, and unless further funding comes soon our future is not certain. We need your help.
We need to ensure the safety and security of bunkhouses future, with everything currently happening we will not survive the next few months if things continue to get worse. We are a completely self funded independent music venue - since our launch we have prided ourselves on providing Swansea with regular original live music and professional touring bands. We can’t let this virus ruin everything for you, and us.
All money raised will help us survive
we thank you for anything you can put in the pot
