Keeping our museum alive
during these heavy times

As we move forward to the City of Culture 2021, we have some amazing ideas, once we have paid our bills, any spare cash can go to these new exciting projects.

We believe that The Coventry Music Museum belongs to everyone, everyone that has an interest in Coventry & Warwickshire music, especially 2-Tone Ska music. So many people have helped us in the past and we thank you so much for that.

This time the equation is simple, a closed museum means not visitors, no visitors means no revenue, no revenue means no rent payed, no rent payed could mean, well I think you can see what it could mean, I hate to even say it.

We are asking if you are able (and we know there are so many worthy causes right now), but if you feel the Coventry Music Museum is worth saving then anything you can pledge would be amazing. Skank You so much.
