Stop Joseph's Well turning The Well into a restaurant!

      Leeds, United Kingdom

The owner of the Joseph's Well office complex is wanting Enterprise Inns to turn The Well into a restaurant. This would mean closing down The Well as we know it and put an end to over 15 years of live music.

We want to show them that The Well is a vital part in Leeds' music community, and that turning the premises into a restaurant wouldn't be in the interests of a significant number of people, not just from the local area, but from the people and bands that travel from all over the country and even world to play and watch gigs here.

Please sign this petition and hopefully we can add some real weight to the argument for keeping The Well as a music venue for years to come. Thank you.

      As a teenager my son and his band played lots of gigs here. This venue is one of the few where this could happen and helped many youngsters to have a focus in life instead of hanging around the streets.

      Good news everyone - The Well is back up and running, under new management. It opened for Live at Leeds on 5 May 2012, and the new management have pledged to restore the venue to its former glory. Long live The Well.... New website www.thewellleeds.co.uk coming soon. In the meantime visit www.facebook.com/leedsthewell or twitter @leedsthewell

      Great venue, great people, great music and great bands. Places like this that are keeping real music alive are becoming rare they can't afford to be closed down :/

      I've been going there since the start. We need more music venues not less.

      The Well is such a huge part of the Leeds music community that changing it into a restaurant will have a greater knock-on effect than can be imagined. It's a foolish thing to do, keep it open!
