The Latest from Green Note…
Hello music lovers,
Hope you’re doing well. Just a little update from us, mostly about our twice weekly live streamed shows (which we’re planning to continue for as long as the venue remains closed), but also about our plans for the future. We’ve got some really exciting line ups coming up as part of our “Virtually Green Note” series, so check out the listings… or just join us on YouTube us every Weds & Fri at 8pm, knowing that you’ll be in for a musical treat! And don’t forget, if you’re unable to join us live, the shows remain available to watch for a week after on our YouTube channel, so there’s no reason to miss out!
VENUE NEWS & GOVERNMENT SUPPORT;
With recent announcements from the government, including that music venues can open (with social distancing) from next month, many of you have been asking about our re-opening plans. We’re still unsure about our exact plans, as there are many factors to consider. But we can tell you with certainty that we certainly won’t be re-opening next month, and most likely not the following one either. And we do not plan to open until we believe it is safe to do so. As most of you know, the intimate nature of our venue means that social distancing would be very difficult to enforce, and at this stage it also would not be practically or financially viable for us to open under these circumstances.
The government also recently announced a big rescue package to Britain’s globally renowned arts, culture and heritage industries to help weather the impact of coronavirus. We don’t have a lot of information yet, but we do know that the Arts Council will be used to distribute these grants and loans, that there is a rigorous application process, and that there will be a lot of competition. We are planning to put in an application to help with our re-opening costs, so we will be working on this over the next few weeks. We shall keep you posted!
In the meantime, we have been advised by the Music Venue Trust to keep going with our crowdfunder campaign. We have been overwhelmed by how much support we have received so far… and are pleased to announce that we are now at 79% of our target!!! THANK YOU to all of you who have donated so far and/or sent us messages of encouragement. We are so grateful for the support - it’s been an invaluable help and also helped keep us feeling connected to our wonderful music-loving community during this very strange time.
That’s our main news from now, but as usual we’ll keep you posted on further updates. Thank you all again for your continued support - we really appreciate it!
Lots of love,
Immy & Risa xx
