Help Us Survive Corona Virus

Hello everyone!

Due the lack of clear direction from our current government in telling people not to attend gatherings yet not forcing closure on spaces such as ours ( since they would have to provide financial aid ) and the risk of spreading corona virus further we sadly have no choice but to crowd fund our way through the next few months at The Joiners.

80% of our touring shows are already postponed or cancelled up until mid April which puts at a huge loss, gatherings of 200 people or less aren't high risk alas we are stuck in a terrible position of not having any business in our usual busiest time of the year! :( 

All shows and events from Monday 23rd March to Tuesday 7th April inc have been cancelled or moved (please check website or facebook events for further details). We will be reviewing the situation for other shows over the next couple of months and will post continual updates.  

All tickets will remain valid for rescheduled dates. Tickets can be refunded, but we would ask you to consider supporting the venue and artists by not refunding them if you are able to afford to.

The circumstances we are currently in leave things out of our control and as we solely function as a music space we REALLY need YOUR help The Joiners family / music community in keeping our cultural independent music hub afloat. 

We don't take this decision lightly we are always of the mindset ' The Show Must Go on ' but unfortunately due to outside influence it just won't work at this point in time, our venue survives on a thin margin and if we have slim to no crowd we simply will not survive this situation as there are still significant overheads we need to cover as a independent business whether we open our doors or not. 

Anything you donate is appreciated massively, as is your support or sharing of this across social media.
The Joiners has always been YOUR venue it belongs to you the people, the gig goers and bands, we do this for you day in, day out.

So if you can help at all at this trying time we will love you until the bitter end...! :)
