The Shed

In 2017 we set about to save The Shed from being turned into a block of flats.

In just 3 short years we turned the venue into a thriving home from home for many creatives, and we were finally starting to have a break through moment when the pandemic hit. 

We don't have cash reserves, but what we do have is sheer determination to re open our doors with our full team of staff still in place once this is over!

But we can't do it without help, so if you can, please donate and help us create more memories and friendships for many years to come.

You can follow our story on social media here: 

We also have  a range of t shirts for sale, designed for us by Jaz Hunt (
These t shirts have been made to raise funds to fix damage caused by vandals pre-pandemic (yes taps really were stolen!)

You can grab one here :

Thank you so much for believing in and supporting Grassroots Music Venues, and we'll see you on the other side!
