Take over Jesters/Clowns

Jesters and Clowns have been a long standing staple of student life in Southampton. It is an essential part of the Southampton University experience and needs to be protected for the future. The club and pub are both highly profitable and so running it would be sustainable in the long term and is viable. The floors above could also be used for Union purposes such as accommodation for visitors or as Social space.

Hi James!

Thanks for your idea. Unfortunately, we are not in a financial position to be able to take over Jesters at the moment (unless any of us get a handy EuroMillions win!) - the cost to buy it and renovate is well beyond our means. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news - I've had my fair share of wonderful nights in Jesters, and will be sad to see it go!
