In the wake of a burst water main which flooded their basement venue and caused significant damage, The Cookie has announced that they will be raising funds for the repairs in part through a GoFundMe campaign.

The flooding, documented in a video widely shared through social media last week, has caused damage to the venues floors and ceiling as well as to electrical equipment. Several shows were rescheduled or relocated, with the venue back to operation earlier this week.

You can support the cause by donating though their Go Fund Me page which can earn you free gig tickets and other VIP packages.

Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Great Central, John has been actively involved in Leicester's creative community for over a decade - promoting shows and releasing records under the name Robot Needs Home. He is a director of Handmade Festival, and ex member of the band Maybeshewill.
