Recent advice to the public has meant that the Tin can no longer open for live music and other events. We have rescheduled most of our events which were due to take place between now and after Easter, with a view to reviewing as and when more advice is given.
The Tin employs 13 people and has 5 self-employed sound engineers. For most of our staff, this is their only job and they rely on the Tin for their income. We also contribute to the income of workshop leaders, numerous musicians, tour managers, touring engineers and their agents and managers. Please help us to ensure they keep their jobs and we cover our running cost.
How can you do this?
* Please consider not requesting a refund, if you can no longer make a rescheduled date. If you can afford to, pass the ticket onto someone else.
* Buy a ‘Suspended’ ticket for someone less fortunate. In a similar vein to suspended coffees, buy a ticket for someone who can’t afford to. When you purchase your ticket through our ticket shop, instead of your name, please write ‘SUSPENDED’. We will then publicise availability through community groups we work with.
* Share our events and hire our venue. The more people who know about us the better. Promote our venue, share events and hire our venue for parties.
* Lastly – Please donate to our fundraiser – the next few weeks and possibly months will be a real struggle for us. Please consider donating to our fundraiser. localgiving.org/charity/thetinmusicandarts/project/coronafund
This is a trying time for the arts but we’re sure we can get through this with your support.
