Help Save Newport’s Le Pub Music Venue

Newport, South Wales music venue Le Pub has unfortunately been put up for sale due to the fact that the current owner could no longer afford to keep it running.

However an online Crowdfunder campaign has been launched by promoters Sŵn and Sam Harries to save the venue. The campaign is looking to raise £20,000.

Full details can be found here.

A message from Sŵn and Sam Harries :

“Newport venue Le Pub is up for sale. The current owner can no longer run the business and needs to sell. So far, everyone who has gone to look around it wants to turn it into a wine bar, or flats. After the closure of Newport TJs we don’t want that to happen to Le Pub.

Welsh promoters Sŵn and the manager of Le Pub, Sam Harries, are launching a campaign to Save Le Pub. We have the expertise to run the venue, to book more shows in the spirit with which the venue has been operating and to help market the venue to more people. What we don’t have is enough money to buy the venue and carry out the re-decoration that Le Pub desperately needs.

So we need your help. And fast. We need to raise the extra capital to purchase Le Pub and restore it to its former glory so it can remain open and continue as a space for live music in Newport.

We know we need at least £20,000. That’s a lot of money. But there’s a lot of you. People who have watched bands in Le Pub, drunk in Le Pub, played in Le Pub or want to play in Le Pub. Whatever you can contribute will help.

Help us Save Le Pub.

Sŵn & Sam Harries
