Since it’s transformation from the much loved mainstay of the Coventry music scene, Taylor Johns, to a charitable organisation in August 2013, The Tin Music and Arts has gone from strength to strength. Named in homage to the now sadly closed Tin Angel, The Tin Music and Arts is committed to creating a thriving, artistic hub here at the Canal Basin as well as in other venues around the city. Our events have a positive influence on the community of Coventry as a whole – whether that be through our regular live music events, which sees us frequently booking established and international acts as well as local homegrown talent, or through our artist’s studio, and Community Space, which is used almost every day of the week for Tai Chi and Yoga Classes.
We are 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.
Our live music programme takes place in both our own venue – The Coal Vaults as well as other interesting venues around the city.
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.
