!Important post!
PLEASE SHARE!

We are all aware of the cost of living crisis that the UK is suffering under at the moment.

Everything seems to be rising from utilities, rent, petrol, food, clothes, toiletries. It's a really worrying time for everyone.

Millions of us will be foregoing holidays, meals out, new clothes, weekend trips out and visits to the pub - treats and essential self care, to focus on keeping a roof over our heads and food on the table.

We feel this is even more marked in a town like Bolton which is largely working class, and can be considered as an overal low socio economic area.

This has obviously been a worry for us as managers and caretakers of The Alma.

This pub is almost 200 years old and has survived as a viable business since the 1850s; and not to be dramatic - has survived 2 World Wars, recessions, a global pandemic and some questionable past management!

It has seen several generations of regular and occasional customers come through it's doors to find a safe and welcoming environment.

The bands we've hosted come from humble local beginnings but have also been world famous - playing sell out stadiums yet coming to our little corner of the world to entertain us on our small stages.

We are now seeing a notable and worrying drop in trade, some of this will be due to the change in seasons, with more people staying in, and out of the cold, but a lot of this is due to the strain this crisis is putting on everything.

Ninety five percent of all gigs and events we have on at The Alma are Free Entry, and of course bands and entertainment still need paying, we don't offer slots purely for exposure here, we offer a full PA system, backline & lights and an experienced sound engineer plus payment for artists' skills, time and energy.

This all costs money and we are happy to pay for all of this, as an original and thriving live music scene in Bolton is our biggest passion.

Live music isn't our only offering, we also have busy board game nights, Ronan's packed fortnightly quizzes, Student nights, a comedy night and we even have a new small library of books available to read, swap and borrow.

We are asking for your help to get the Alma through what we think is going to be a very challenging winter.

If you can, please consider:

•Popping in for a pint and a chat midweek
•Coming down and watching and supporting our Free Entry gigs of a weekend
•Coming to bother Phat Matt on his DJ nights and requesting your favourite songs
•Taking part in our Quiz (or tell your friends about it)
•Coming down and getting warm and cosy with Sophie on our chilled boardgame nights
•Letting new students know we have a new student night on Wednesdays with specific student drink deals

If youre not able to come down and physically or financially support then please consider:

•Liking, interacting and sharing our posts
•Talking to your friends, families and co workers about the Alma and how welcoming and fun it is
•Making sure you're following our social media profiles (our Instagram profile is ) and inviting your friends
•Liking our promoters pages and liking, interacting and sharing their posts , , and

We have an almost completely booked up calendar of gigs, events and activities going right into the new year so there really is something for everyone (including Metal Karaoke in December!)

With love and thanks,

The Alma Team x

Thank you to everybody who has sent in stories and memories of visiting Booth's Music over the years. It really has been great reading all the messages and comments and it's nice to see that so many people have been enjoying the historic photographs. There are many more to come and please do keep the stories coming in.

Here is another "historic" photograph for you this morning, this time from the upstairs guitar department. This collage guitarists who were popular in the early 2000's adorned the staircase as customers headed up to browse and try different guitars.

There are also posters to be seen advertising Doa Studios, a rock night that took place on Tuesdays at "The Office" on Bank Street and a gig where Colin's band at the time, Displacement, were playing.
