The Winston Pub

Personal message

Thank you for your interest in helping The Winston Pub in this time of need. Because it appears we will only be able to open our doors again at “Level 1” of the lockdown easing (whenever that may be), we really need your help to #KeepTheWinstonAlive during this Covid-19 pandemic.

 

If we manage to reach our target, we will be able to cover our rental, utilities, and staff wages for the next three months. It is really important to us that we keep supporting our beloved Winston team and keep their families fed throughout this crisis.

 

We understand that times are tough everywhere - and even more so without being able to visit the old Winnie ;) – but if you are able to help, it would make a big difference!! Please help save this iconic music venue by donating what you can now or pledge a monthly donation by signing up to be a Patron patreon.com/thewinstonpub

 

Can’t wait to rock out with you on the other side!

 

P.S. If you don’t know who we are – The Winston is a live music venue and iconic divebar in Durban, South Africa, that – for almost 30 years – has provided a platform for young and emerging artists to play their first shows, for audiences to fall in love with music, a playground for the rockstars, and a home for all to discover and nurture friendships within the local creative scene. We have not only proudly supported bands from across our country, but have also offered our stage to some kickass international acts. In addition, our venue walls afford our city’s most talented graffiti artists the opportunity to experiment with and showcase some unique styles and wicked subject matter.

 

If you are able to help, we’ll be forever grateful. We hope you’ll come visit us one day to experience our city’s most iconic and oldest alternative live music venue – and get your gratitude high-five for being a super human.
