Can you help the Sub Rooms?
By David Wood
Stroud Subscription Rooms is celebrating another large donation to its Crowdfunder - but it needs your support to turn it into a reality.
Julia and Hans Rausing have kindly offered £10,000 to the Subs' appeal if an additional £10,000 can be raised by the public.
"This match-funding is an incredibly generous offer but we need the public to help us make it a reality by donating the additional £10,000 by the end of July," said Hugh, the Subs' volunteer director. "Any donation, starting at £10, is hugely welcome.
"We've already made huge improvements to the building - a successful acoustic treatment in the iconic ballroom, an amazing new Art Deco bar and our fabulous new ground floor central bar and kitchen - now we just need all Stroudies to really support us.
"We still have some big and some small rewards available on our Crowdfunder, topped off with the naming rights for our new bar," added Hugh.
"There must be an individual or business out there that would like their name preserved in perpetuity. We just need someone to step in so we can fulfil the conditions of the incredibly generous match-funding offer."
The Subs has just released its first post-Covid programme with events featured from September. The stellar line-up includes The Waterboys and KT Tunstall (both sold out), BBC Radio 4 Any Questions, Mica Paris, James Taylor Quartet, Albert Lee, Trevor Nelson, The Magic Numbers, Fairport Convention, The Shires, Sam Lee, Ward Thomas, The Blockheads, Norman Jay, Salute to Humphrey Lytttelton, The Brand New Heavies, Bjorn Again and a top-of-the-range Beauty & The Beast Christmas Pantomime.
