Welcome To The Greyhound
GREETINGS FROM THE GREYHOUND TEAM!
What an incredible weekend we've had partying with The JD's on Friday, Soul Stripper Saturday and the amazing Dan Reed on Sunday. 3 nights of great live music and an amazing atmosphere as always. With lots more still to come over the next couple of months let's keep the party going and show everyone why we need to keep small music venues like this alive, it would be such a dull world without live music.
Well, we've got another top weekend lined up for you all with Rebel Rebel on Friday, Hellbent Forever on Saturday and Rusti Steel on Sunday for our monthly rockabilly night. So with 3 great nights of free live music plus our DJs to keep you dancing 'til the early hours and not forgetting a chance to win a gallon of beer in our raffles on Friday & Saturday, you just know it's going to be another great weekend of music and merriment. So get your butts down and join in the fun here at The Greyhound this weekend and Keep music live!
The end of an era!
It’s with great sadness we have to announce that as of midnight Sunday 6th November 2017 The Greyhound, Beeston will close it’s doors as a music venue for the very last time.
We all knew from the outset back in April last year that keeping the music live here was never going to be an easy task, but with a lot of hard work, sleepless nights and amazing support from both customers and bands alike we all managed to turn things around and within the first year we were almost breaking even (no mean feat in itself). We could never have done this without your support so thank you everyone for your help.
Unfortunately, as you are probably aware, this year our business rates were doubled from £32K to £64K a year, making it impossible for us to continue without going bankrupt. This was never about making a fortune for us, we just wanted to be able to cover the bills and keep the music live but it’s just not possible now. Sadly The Greyhound will be joining the ever increasing list of small grassroots music venues closing around the UK each week.
We still intend to continue right up to the final day with some amazing bands and one hell of a party, so we hope you’ll continue to come down and help celebrate what’s been an amazing time here at The Greyhound. Let’s go out with a bang, not a whimper.
Remember, keep supporting live music venues around the country, the phrase “Use it or lose it” has never been more apt these days.
Please keep an eye out for further information as the team have no intentions of calling it quits. We are at present looking for an alternative location to continue keeping the music live!
THE REAL ALES RETURN!
