Oxford venue The Cellar needs to raise £80,000 before Christmas to avoid closure

The venue needs renovations to comply with new fire regulations.

Independent Oxford venue The Cellar – a favourite of local bands like Foals, pictured – is once again under threat of closure.

Having narrowly avoided redevelopment this time last year, it now needs to raise funds for renovations necessary to comply with new fire regulations.

“Sadly, with the extent of the renovations we’ve been asked to make, we simply don’t have the money to pay for them,” explains venue manager Tim Hopkins.

“Which is why we’re calling on people power again with this crowdfunding campaign. As well as our own passion to keep going, we owe it to all our amazing supporters to give this one last try.”
