'save the lantern' fundraiser will receive 50% of  every sale made from this page #saveourvenues

The Lantern is a 130 Capacity purpose built live music venue in Halifax, West Yorkshire and opened on the 10th November 2017. Already hosting some incredible acts such as: Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Baxter Dury, The Wedding Present, PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS, The Virginmarys, John Bramwell (I AM KLOOT), amongst others. 

During the last 8 months, Music Venue Trust and Crowdfunder have worked together to prevent the closure of hundreds of grassroots music venues. Government funding, financial support, furlough schemes and business support has been secured for some venues but 30 venues are on the 'Critical List' and need your help to prevent them closing and being lost forever.

The Lantern in Halifax is one of the venues on the MVT 'Critical List' (at risk of permanent closure) and I've offered to donate 50% of every sale of some of my archive framed or mounted print stock to their crowdfunding page to help. Clearly the need for funding support is urgent so please take a look through and press 'click to buy' to email me with your order promptly* and/or share this page across your social media to friends who you think may like the artists/prints featured. 

I have only one of each item. All are 13 x 17 inches (inc frame) unless noted otherwise. Sales will be on a 'first come, first served basis' (in the order received via email). Each item is for sale at the price shown plus postage/delivery and 50% of the price shown will be donated to The Lantern.


If you would like to read more about the MVT initiatives, crowdfunding efforts and perhaps donate to a different venue on the list visit www.crowdfunder.co.uk/save-our-venues-red-list 

If you'd prefer to just donate directly to The Lantern's own crowdfunding appeal please visit www.crowdfunder.co.uk/thelantern

* 'Click To Buy' will take you to email me directly. Please include your name and contact details and the name of the print you'd like to buy. I will confirm whether you've been successful (as first purchaser) and payment details by return.
