So get your butts down and join in the fun here at The Greyhound this week 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!
