Sam Dabb (Le Pub)

Sam Dabb has been working in and managing Le Pub for 25 years. Under her guardianship it became a top venue on the UK touring circuit and has been nominated for many awards including NME Small Venue Of The Year, in which it finished third overall and first in Wales. In 2016, when faced with closure due to the sale of the building Sam set up a co-operative and launched a community share offer, enabling Le Pub to move to much bigger premises and become a multi use artspace as well as a venue. From 2020 – 2023 Sam was working as Welsh Coordinator for the Music Venue Trust helping venues negotiate the intricacies of funding and regulations during the Covid 19 pandemic. Since that role came to end she has been helping venues in her role as Sustainability and Profitability Guru for the charity.
