CRASS – Crass Heart badge to support our music venues

£2.00

Thanks to you we have sold over 600 Crass Heart Badges with all profits going to a venue that I’ve played in or will play in the future.

Like so many other venues, Tullikamari (also used to be called Klubi) in Finland has not been able to open their doors to live music for over a year and is struggling to keep afloat. The first time I played there was in 2010 during The Last Supper Tour and later on with Slice Of Life in 2015 and 2019.

Every single time we were welcomed with open arms and they went over and above to look after us and make us feel part of their family. Over the years Tullikamari has supported and given opportunities to many artists. Now this amazing and proud venue needs our support.

Music venues all over the world will need our support during this pandemic. By buying this heart or sharing this, you will support a venue and live music.

Description

This beautiful design was initially made by Paul Thorpe. He found the heart image of the Crass symbol on the internet, burnt it into olive wood (pyrography) and put his own spin on it.

We decided that this would be the perfect design to support music venues during the Covid 19 Pandemic. For me and many of you music is part of my life and it made me who I am today. No music venues, no gigs, no live music.

So far, with your support, we have donated 100 % of the profit of 600 Crass Heart Badges to:

  • The Foremans Bar, Nottingham
  • The Railway Hotel, Southend
  • SO36, Berlin in Germany
  • Jac’s, Aberdare
  • New Cross Inn, London
  • The Rising Sun Arts Centre, Reading

Our next 100 Hearts will go to Tullikamari, Tampere in Finland.
