my husband and I have been running the Hertford Corn Exchange for 15 years. It has provided a vital service to the local community and an income (eventually) to our young family. We are firstly a grass roots music venue providing a stage for local and national emerging musicians as well as comedians, actors, artists and anyone who needs a stage.

We are also a community hub; we raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity, are a drop in centre for the homeless, a respite centre for young carers,  provide music and art therapy workshops, train youngsters in all aspects of the music industry.

We have reached a brick wall and now need him to listen
