Dear Musicians and Performers,
We hope this message finds you well. First and foremost, we want to express our sincere gratitude for your interest in performing at the Hope & Anchor pub. We truly value the incredible talent and passion that musicians like you bring to our establishment.
We understand that performing live is a significant part of your journey as an artist, and we are committed to supporting the local music scene. As much as we would love to compensate performers generously, the reality is that we are unable to allocate more than £200-£250 for Saturday performances (we can pay either with a bank transfer or cash on the night, the min-max pay depends on how busy we get and if the musical performance attracts a lot of people or not).
The reason behind this limitation is our dedication to hosting a multitude of musical events throughout the year, which, while enriching our pub's ambiance, also places a considerable financial burden on our resources. We believe in offering our patrons a diverse and dynamic musical experience, and this commitment has made it challenging for us to allocate larger budgets for individual performances.
Also, we are thrilled to share that we are continuously investing in improving our venue's infrastructure to enhance your performance experience. In 2024, we will introduce an exceptional PA system, complete with a complex mixer, high-quality monitors, microphones, cables, a top-tier drum kit, and a piano – all of which will be available to you at no extra cost. Additionally, we will provide a skilled sound technician to assist with wiring and conduct a thorough sound check.
We believe that by providing these essential resources and support, we can streamline the setup process and ensure a consistent and superior sound quality for every performance. This will not only save valuable time for you but also contribute to an unforgettable experience for both the artists and our audience.
We sincerely hope you understand the constraints we face as a business at times while we strive to provide the best possible platform for local talent. We greatly appreciate your dedication to music and your interest in performing at the Hope & Anchor pub. If you are open to working within our budget, we would be thrilled to have you grace our stage and be a part of our vibrant musical community.
Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to the possibility of hosting your performance at the Hope & Anchor.
PS: If you would like to book a free rehearsal session or perform for free, then please go ahead and book a Friday session.
Hope & Anchor
