We need a sound mixer for Unity Hall - our new, co-cooperatively owned music venue that opens in September

Wakefield Delivery stage

pledged of £22,132

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

We set up our co-op three years ago to rescue the wonderful Unity Hall - empty for a decade. It was the centre of Wakefield social and cultural life for a century and in the '80s had all the old troopers appearing - Stranglers, Slade, Boomtown Rats, Iron Maiden etc

We've got 235 investor / members who have put in £110,000 and launched us to raising over £4m to refurbish the building - see more pictures here: - Unity Hall

The co-op bought the building in Oct 13 - here's the TV coverage of the day we took over

We're on site and ready to open in September, but don't have enough money for the audio equipment

What we'll deliver:

  • Draw up a spec, tender for the equipment and fit it in July

Why it's a great idea:

This is the last piece of a three year funding effort. We've borrowed all we can, we've applied to everyone we can, now it's just down to people and their money.

We've saved the most important to last. A music venue without sound equipment is not a great idea.

Other than Spacehive, we are relaunching our community share issue to raise another £100,000 (minimum investment £200). Details on the shares page of our website -

Steps to get it done:

  • Raise all the money by June
  • Purchase the best mixer the money will buy

The soundmixer is the Spacehive part of a wider fundraising effort for the audio and light equipment, particularly for those people who may not be able to afford to buy shares
