Help THE HORN survive the COVID-19 crisis – a Business crowdfunding project in St. Albans by The Horn
THE HORN needs your help.
In light of the current situation regarding COVID-19/Coronavirus and as instructed by the government, THE HORN is closed until further notice.
As always, the safety and health of staff, customers, artists and all others is of the utmost importance, our focus now needs to be on protecting the future of the venue and doing our best to ensure staff welfare.
Like so many other small, independent businesses, we now face an unpredictable and potentially very grave future and we need your help.
Put simply: without support and action during these times, The Horn will NOT survive and its staff will be placed in a vulnerable financial position. We are taking advice from the government re financial help and will apply for a business loan when it goes live. BUT all of these measure will still fall short paying our existing outgoings and losses. Sadly, due to a rateable value above the threshold we did not receive the grant given to small businesses, other large bills have been deferred and will still be due if we can re-open, on top of the bills due at that point.
We have decided to launch this funding page to help support our staff and pay essential bills. All funds raised on this page will be used to support staff financially while trying to safeguard and protect the future of the venue.
With any luck, we can soften the blow of the forthcoming challenges for our staff, and keep ourselves afloat long enough for there to be a business and jobs for staff to return to.
At this point, while we understand that so many others are facing similarly uncertain times, and priority is your own families and helping those less fortunate in our local area, we are encouraging everyone in the community and beyond who is able to and and wants to play a part in safeguarding the future of The Horn, to please donate generously to this fund. In return we will be offering HORN-related items and other incentives for larger donations, should you be able to help.

Lots of love everyone at The Horn
