We're one of the music venues identified by MVT as being most at risk of permanent closure due to the crisis. Please support our campaign.

by The Post Bar Tottenham in London, England, United Kingdom

The Post Bar Tottenham is part of a national initiative launched by the MVT to prevent the permanent closure of music venues most at risk due to the crisis. 

We are a live music & art venue in the heart of Tottenham. We opened our venue in Dec 2018 and had made massive progress in bringing more live music to North London. We strive to be as diverse as possible and have been happy to host a varied line up of music & events to influence and entertain for the last two years.

When Covid hit back in March we adapted as quick as possible by creating a dedicated food menu for delivery, we opened up our garden space so as soon as outdoor performances were allowed- we did so.

We changed our venue by creating a covid safe space so that we could have indoor events with cabaret style seating. With every restriction put upon us we have quickly changed and adhered to that so that we could #letthemusicplay and we could keep going. We have been recognised by Arts Council England as grassroots music venue important to North London.

Again with this second lock down we are continuing with food deliveries but it isn't enough to keep going and we are in real danger of not making it through this time. We are crowd funding to help pay our costs and keep our business alive in these challenging times.  Please do support us if you can.

Why are we crowdfunding?

Our music venue risks permanent closure because of the high rent and overheads to lease a building like this on Tottenham High Road 

Your donations will be used to pay our bills & keep our staff on board.

About The Post Bar Tottenham 

We are the Post Bar Tottenham. We have been open since Dec 2018. We opened the venue when the opportunity came to lease an old Post Office.

We wanted to start our own venue after spending the last few years working in theatre and on temporary events presenting different types of Latin music around London. Once we moved to Tottenham, we realised there was a real need and want for a venue that could nurture new local talent and showcase existing artists. A place in North London that is accessible and committed to providing a diverse program of music & events.

In the last two years we have put on over 200 events and since we reopened in July we have been dedicated to still have live music and events in our venue, to support musicians and the whole industry as best we could even in a small way if necessary.

Here's a few nice reviews & testimonials from some of our team & community

Sam Jesson Promoter of Magpie Sessions 

The Post bar is an essential part the London jazz scene, providing a platform for emerging talent to perform as well as a place for experienced players to workshop and develop new material.

Thanks to the open mindedness and courage of The Post Bar owners I was able to set up a monthly jazz residency in an area which didn’t at that point have one. This residency led to a project that went on to do a 20 date UK tour, gaining attention in the national press and received Arts Council England funding. This residency was due to restart with a gig at The London Jazz Festival and set the foundations to put this venue on the UK jazz scene map. Along with this residency The Post Bar plays host to a weekly jam which is an essential opportunity for musicians to meet and network as well as bringing an audience into the process and growth of their local music scene.

I’ve seen other communities putting on nights at The Post Bar, bringing together musicians from all walks of life and disciplines, making it is an invaluable grassroots venue and an essential cultural melting pot in such a thriving and diverse area.

Next year I look forward to programming a whole week of music during the London Jazz Festival at The Post Bar, bringing international players into the heart of Tottenham.

A quirky, welcoming venue with a lot of character. There are always events that involve the community, like music, arts and crafts and food popups where they source the best local talent. The staff is so full of life, always ready for a chat about anything and quick service. It's cozy and welcoming with a little stove for the winter and a garden out back in the summer. This gem stole my heart!

Ace live music venue, intimate with good acoustics and a cosy vibe. Local beers from Oddly Brewery on tap, and good food at decent prices. What's not to like?

About Save Our Venues - The Red List

During the last 8 months, Music Venue Trust and Crowdfunder have worked together to prevent the closure of hundreds of grassroots music venues. With no end to the crisis in sight, we are now refocusing that work to spotlight those venues under most imminent threat of permanent closure. The #SaveOurVenues Red List highlights the grassroots music venues at most risk.

Right now.

We’ve checked all the available funding, financial support, furlough schemes, business support for these venues, and what is on offer is not enough to prevent them being lost. These 30 venues are on the Critical List and need your help. #SaveThe30

These grassroots venues play a crucial role in the development of British music, nurturing local talent, providing a platform for artists to build their careers and develop their music and their performance skills. These venues also play a vital role in the cultural and economic vibrancy of any village, town or city.

Please donate, share this page widely and do what you can to help us to make sure our grassroots music venues survive this crisis.
