At least four independent Scottish venues still face threat of closure

Four independent Scottish venues still face the threat of permanent closure according to the Music Venue Trust (MVT).

MVT has published a list of 30 venues across the UK that were unsuccessful in their applications for grant money, or did not receive enough to survive until they can once again open their doors to the public.

On that list are four Scottish venues:

The Gellions (Inverness) 

 Hootenany Music Bar (Invernees)

Venue 38 (Ayr)

 Backstage (Kinross)

You can donate to the #SaveThe30 campaign via their Crowdfunder campaign here.
