Creative Quarter Pub Calling For Angels to Save its Future

Tue 16th Feb 2021

by Creative Quarter

A landmark Nottingham pub with a colourful past as both a brothel and a chapel is battling for its life with a campaign urging supporters to Become An Angel to Save The Angel.

Life News

“The Angel is so much more than just another pub. It supports the creative life of the city and is a home for those with an independent spirit, a welcome space for artists to try out new material and learn their stagecraft. Without places like The Angel, multi-venue festivals such as ours wouldn’t be possible and Nottingham would be that much poorer for its loss. Long live The Angel!”

“Despite doing everything we can to stay afloat, we are struggling especially as time goes on and we still can’t open or even offer beer for takeaway. We’ve had hundreds of people donating to our Go Fund Me and we are so grateful for every single one. We’ve also had lots of support from the creative community here from local businesses, artists, promoters and musicians which has been so heartwarming. However, we urgently need more support from the government as do many others across the hospitality industry if we are to survive until we can open our doors again.”
