The Tin Music and Arts is a charity which was established in August 2013. We are a community arts organisation based in two neighbouring premises – The Tin at the Coal Vaults is a venue which is set in the former coal storage building in Coventry’s 18th century canal basin. It has two main rooms, one of which contains a stage and performance area; the other has a bar and seating. Next door in Units 1-4 is our office, rehearsal space, artist studio and large community room which is used to host a variety of community activities.
We have been running music and cultural events in Coventry since 2001 (previously at The Tin Angel and the Taylor John’s Music and Arts Centre) and have won two regional awards for ‘Best Venue’ in consecutive years.
Our events programme is innovative, diverse, challenging and we have a reputation for supporting high quality and innovative arts and artists from Coventry, the UK, and from all over the world. As well as programming live music and events we partner with several local organisations to deliver specific programmes and events.
Our sister company is an internationally renowned record label Tin Angel Records.
The Objects of the charity are:-
1) To advance education in music and arts for the public benefit by the provision of an arts facility
2) The promotion of health by the provision of tuition in music and arts
3) To promote social inclusion for the public benefit by preventing people from becoming socially excluded, relieving the needs of those people who are socially excluded and assisting them to integrate into society
