The Tin is a community arts centre based in Coventry’s historic Canal Basin, run and operated by the charity, The Tin Music and Arts.

Specialising in original live music across many genres but welcoming all art forms, the Tin aims to be a home-from-home for everyone coming through our doors.

We operate from our spaces in the Canal Basin –

The Coal Vaults – our venue for gigs and other events run by ourselves or others

The Community Space – our flexible facility for events, activities, and meetings, particularly for hire-out by charities and community groups

We also have rehearsal and recording facilities and hold film screening equipment on behalf of CineCov for hire by community groups.

We also curate shows in other spaces e.g., Coventry Cathedral, Drapers’ Hall, The Box, The Herbert, Eclipse, and Coventry’s Godiva Festival


We deliver a programme of events and activities to entertain and inspire audiences but, perhaps more importantly, we support local artists, technical professionals, and promoters with a view to helping them to build strong resilient careers – especially those starting out and those from under-represented groups and communities.
