Humbling …Townhouse thanks you all x

http://www.townhousefundraising.com

This pandemic has taught me a lot…but I won’t bore you with all that. However, one of the things it has taught me, which I want to share with you now, is how amazing our community actually is. I always knew you guys were special human beings, but it took a pandemic to realise that our community really is a community that cares.

Since we closed in March last year, we have faced hardships, stress and deep concern for the future of the club and indeed, our own future. Never in my adult life have I been so at a loss as to where my path will lead and not have a plan of action. By my very nature, I like to be in control of everything around me or at least have several options in front of me to choose from!

For the first time ever, I’ve had to wing it. I’ve had to let go of the reins and allow my journey to be led by fate. You may argue that fate always has our future mapped out for us, but I like to think that I have some power over my destiny! lol Letting go was hard and stepping back from being at the helm of Townhouse so very suddenly was like having my life force ripped from me. One day, I was welcoming a capacity crowd into our very popular venue, with refurb plans, new event plans and looking forward to the ‘Roaring Twenties’. Overnight, the club was as quiet as a graveyard, with no customers to bring it to life and it literally had no soul. I was faced with a life with no real purpose.

Over the weeks and months that followed, I truly realised how the outside world views the adult industry. We just weren’t important and not worth saving. Getting turned down for grants and funding, fighting for any money we did get and a ‘fuck off’ from our insurers, sent the message that our industry would be bottom of the pile for any kind of assistance, we would be the very last industry to open and what did we expect? We are outsiders. We are freaks. We should be quiet and thankful that we are allowed to exist in our world at all…pah! I took to social media, explaining the impossible position the industry was in and some of the nasty messages that followed from nilla’s…complete strangers, were beyond abhorrent. I felt sick. What were we going to do? How would we even get to Christmas? There have been times when I felt helpless and so desperately sad for our amazing venue. Sad for the missed opportunities. Sad for the people who rely on our little corner of the kinkdom. I wondered what would happen to our Tgirls who couldn’t be themselves outside of Townhouse and how this would affect their mental health. I wondered about the whole LGBT community who attended Townhouse and relied on us as a safe haven. I wondered about all of our members who struggle each and every day with their mental health, who used Townhouse as their outlet; for some, their weekly visit to Townhouse was their only contact with the outside world! The pressure to keep the club afloat suddenly felt like a massive burden and the responsibility weighed heavy on my shoulders.

It came to the point where we would have to do some fundraising and start selling items from the club to pay the club outgoings. I’ve never asked for money in my life, but without the assistance from government, the club was going to sink. So the fundraising started and selling of ‘stuff’ commenced!!!

What I have realised is that our community is generous beyond belief and I don’t just mean in monetary terms. The offer of practical help, carpentry, building, cleaning, accounting….The offer of pre paid private hires to help out the bank balance. The time people have taken out of their own stressful lives to just check in with us and see how the Townhouse family are holding up.

Really, the support you have shown us has been outstanding. Whether you donated £5 or £50 or more, every single penny counts and it all goes into the Townhouse fund. People have even apologised as they can’t afford more than a fiver!!!! This was so humbling…someone offered to give me their last fiver! I mean, come on!! I admit to shedding a little tear.

Those who have taken the time to message us, I thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart. To know that our fight is appreciated means so much. Everyone is facing their own struggles right now, so to think of us, despite your own demons, is amazing. The Covid wilderness can be a very lonely place, so that contact has been wonderful.

It looks like we may not be open as ‘normal’ for most of this year. I’m not sure how we are going to get through the year; like I said earlier, we are literally winging it from one month to the next. But we will fight so hard for you. We know how much Townhouse means to you all and we won’t give up without expending every option open to us…although options are very few!

So, thank you to each and every person who has stood by us, who has donated, given their time, given their emotional support or has kept us in their thoughts. I bloody love our community and I would not be exaggerating if I said that you have played a part in keeping me sane and focussed. You have been generous beyond belief and it will not be forgotten.

Much love

Townhouse fundraising website

First of all, thank you to everyone who has contacted us privately and commented publicly showing support for Townhouse; it means so much and spurs us on!

So, a funding update…the £40 million that was released to Merseyside to support the hospitality industry through Tier 3 restrictions doesn’t apply to us. To say that I am fuming is an understatement. Other businesses are being shafted too and even those who are eligible, are not getting a lot! Basically, the funding is only applicable to those businesses who fully opened for trade after the initial lockdown and were then forced to close again as they are in Tier 3. It doesn’t apply to businesses who did not fully open again, like ourselves. It also excludes night clubs and adult industry businesses. There are loads of boxes to tick to state which industry you belong to and I was shocked to see night clubs and SEV’s were excluded. I just don’t understand why night clubs and the adult industry are being so badly treated! We have been specifically told that we cannot re-open, yet there is no financial help. We pay our taxes like any other business, yet when we need help, we are not worthy.

I’m hoping that there will be other funding to support self employed people in general as we all seem to have been left to flounder.

In response to the many messages from members and supporters, I have set up a funding website whereby people can make one off donations or regular donations direct to the club. All of the money will go to the Townhouse overheads fund.

Here is the link and feel free to share it if you wish www.townhousefundraising.com 

If you know me, you know that I am usually too proud to ask for help, especially financial help as I have always been independent and worked hard for everything I’ve achieved, but we have now hit that point where the club is bigger than my pride and it simply cannot be filed into history. The club needs you, just like you needed it when you wanted to express yourselves freely and experiment your kinks in safety. 15 years Townhouse has been my home, my social network, my escapism, my guilty pleasure and my passion. I know it’s been so many things to all of you and it is nothing without it’s members. Let’s not allow a virus to take it away from us.

Much love

New club pics launched on our website – Townhouse during isolation

During isolation we have been busy making plans for the future, starting refurb on one of our playrooms and wading through our massive ‘to-do’ list! No rest for the (very) wicked hey? It’s looking like clubs like ours will be closed for a long time so we are making good use of the time to re-evaluate in house logistics, our online presence and making a better experience for guests when they visit.

Our in-house professional photographer managed to capture some great shots of the club for promotional purposes (on his own in the venue of course) which have now been launched on our website, but I want to share them with you here in case you’re having withdrawals! lol  For those who haven’t been to the club for a long time, won’t recognise the place!


Watch Vicky the Owner of Townhouse – Filmed Podcast with ‘Perspectives Podcasts’ – featuring Greg O’Keefe and Adam Latham

Just before the big lockdown, Vicky Managed to squeeze in a great interview with the Perspectives Podcast team.

Learn how it all started, some personal stories, behind the scenes tales and some info for newbies.

It’s a right giggle, so if you’re stuck at home and bored, this will brighten your day!!

 

Also if you missed the hilarious interview at the club with Leanne from Radio City and the What’s On Liverpool guide, then you must watch it…it will have you howling!!

The Townhouse Party Lounge

Our super talented in house photographer managed to nip into the club before lockdown and captured this wonderful shot….I just had to share it with you 🙂

We’re missing our Townhouse family and friends.

Hope you are all looking after yourselves and each other.

Much love

TOWNHOUSE COVID 19 CLOSURE

COVID 19 Statement –

We’ve been in constant communication with Wirral Public Health and the time has come for us to close on their recommendation for an indefinite period due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We will stay in communication with them and will revisit the situation in 2 weeks and then weekly thereafter. When we are given the green light to re-open, we will announce it on here, on our blog and social media!

All events and private hires will be cancelled and anybody who has prepaid for tickets or overnights can either request a full refund or they can transfer it to a future event.

This is a huge blow for the club scene and I know that all clubs will work together to try and weather this storm. Some may not make it, but those that do will need your support more than ever. When this is over, please please support your local clubs as much as possible….let’s face it, you’ll be gagging! Lol

From everyone at Team Townhouse, thank you for your kind messages, your patience and understanding. We will hopefully see you on the other side with a comeback party to remember.
