Dear all

Following the most recent statement from the Government advising the public to avoid pubs and social gatherings, we are shutting The Victoria Vaults for live music events, until further notice. All live music events for the next week have been cancelled or moved to another date (please check website or facebook events for further details). We will be reviewing the situation on a week by week basis taking into account the governments advice..

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.

This is a decision that has been made for morale reasons to help protect the elderly, vulnerable and local community against this dreadful virus! As a music venue who’s aim is to promote local young musicians by providing a venue to apply their skills and also provide the local community with free entertainment, our only income is entirely dependent on bar sales. However, as responsible citizens, we need to do our part in avoiding the virus spreading further. To date our insurance company is refusing to pay out even though we are covered for infectious diseases they are saying coronavirus is not on their list of diseases, nor or they likely to add it in the foreseeable future. We are also a free house and are entirely left on our own when it comes to a financial crisis like the one we are currently in.

We are asking for funding to help keep us afloat during this period with zero income. We have significant overheads to pay: Rent, utilities and fees for cancelled shows... these add up to approximately £900 a week. We may be shut for up to 12 weeks. We also hope to do some essential maintenance work during this down time.

As of yet there is absolutely no word on what support will be available to our sector, and insurers are refusing to cover anything related to COVID-19. The general feeling in the industry is that the Government have not made closure compulsory and that we therefore are unlikely to be able to claim anything.

This is going to be a trying time for us, the arts industry, the nation and the world.

Look after yourselves!
