The Fox and Firkin doors have sadly closed!

We are facing one of the most challenging times, struggling to survive and plan for the future of one of our community’s favourite grass roots live music venues.

 

We have been forced to close to support the UK’s health service and reduce the risk to the public – however we are still faced with £14K a month in running costs of the venue. Since 16th December we have lost over £80K and day by day we continue to mount up more debt.

 

We are proud to be an independent family run establishment, giving over 50,000 people who come through our doors, a unique cultural experience that welcomes over 2,500 grass roots performing artists from all over the world.

 

No one could have anticipated this crisis and as a community music venue without enough cash reserves and no shareholders - this is a devastating blow.

Our ethos at The Fox and Firkin has been the inclusion of ‘ALL’ – a Beautiful Boutique, Festival like space to present and showcase performers from across the globe, a variety of communities, multi cultures and most importantly those who are unrepresented. Our stage is a place for all to shine!

 

In addition to our customers and our performing artists – we employ a collective of approximately 100 local Londoners. Our bar staff, promoters, security, food operators, sound engineers, lighting engineers and our cleaners – are all part of the furniture and contribute to the experience we give to everyone who comes through the door.

 

Right now we do not know when it will be possible to open our doors and welcome YOU back to normal and without restrictions…….it could be 3 months until opening with just a limited number of people allowed…….and many more months before we will have full capacity!

 

We have listened to our community and decided to ask for your help…….if we could survive without it, then we would not be asking. Our venue is what it is because of YOU and if you can offer any support to HELP us to keep it going and keep our doors open in the future, we will be grateful and continue to give you the experience that so many love at The Fox and Firkin!

 

Thank you
