Help Us Fix The Old Courts


The Old Courts building requires an urgent repair carrying out to get our music venue and theatre back open for gigs and performances. In 2023 we discovered catastrophic structural damage in our venue which we later found out was caused by construction work (during our most recent refurb to remove a safe) carried out by a third party. Since then our music venue, The Grand Vault and our Theatre have been closed awaiting repair work. We are trying to raise £100,000 to contribute towards fixing our venues to get the doors back open again, this is the amount we are short by to reopen safely. Whilst the claim is progressing, and we’ve been advised on what is likely to happen, nothing is guaranteed. We need the venues re-opened by September which means the work needs to be started in the next couple of months. We’re doing this on an ‘all or nothing’ basis as this is the final amount we need to contribute towards fixing the venues and getting the doors re-opened. Without the venues fixed, we will have no option other than to remain and try to navigate our way through this unmanageable situation. For Full Details and to donate go to
