We need your help now more than ever – text, donate and help support Unity.
Unity remains at risk of closure due to the financial implications of the current pandemic. But with your help we can continue to provide space and opportunity for people to be creative, enjoy high-quality entertainment, and celebrate the communities of Liverpool – as we have for the past 40 years. You can support our future by texting the following numbers to make a one-off or monthly donation:

Text KEEPUNITYOPEN to 70085 to donate £5 a month
In 2020 we set out ambitious plans to celebrate our 40th anniversary. However, just two and a half months in our plans, like so many others, were ground to halt. It is likely we will not see audiences return until Spring 2021, at which point the venue will have been without ticket, bar and commercial hire income for a year.
This sudden loss of income from refunded tickets, cancelled tours, postponed programme and no events has already regretfully resulted in significant staff redundancies, both local and national artists losing work and community groups who would regularly use our venue as a safe, welcoming space missing out on regular support.
Though we have worked hard to reduce the impacts, offering as much support as we can online and providing artist opportunities in new and exciting ways, we still have a way to go to ensure future safety.
The money we aim to raise with our text campaign will go directly toward our operating costs.
