Having closed on the 18th March, Hope Works has since been unable to operate at full capacity, which the venue notes is essential to allow it to survive.

With the need for social distancing and vigilance increasing as winter approaches – and the number of of infections across the UK dramatically increasing over the past four weeks – Hope Works has launched the crowdunding campaign in order to cover its basic running costs for the next six months.

Alongside this, Hope Works also need £6,000 in order to deliver its No Bounds Virtual 2020 festival, which features a Nyege Nyege Tapes showcase alongside sets from 96 Back, Electric Indigo, Space Afrika, Saoirse, Mark Fell and more.
