There is always plenty going on at The Tuppenny, from live music to brewery events (See below for latest listings)
Several times a month we host The Thursday Night Music Club, brought to you by the finger-on-the-musical-pulse team at SoPLive, where you will discover the cream of local and national underground music, guaranteed to be incredible and different to any other venue in town. They also bring a more chilled vibe to the second Sunday of the month with The Sunday Social, a family friendly afternoon of live music and general knowledge quizzing.
The last Sunday of the month always brings us the idiocy of the Monthly Music Quiz as the lads from the Swindon Shuffle music festival entertain, educate, argue amongst themselves and raise money for Swindon Mind.
Our resident DJ’s The Avocado Brothers bring us The Playlist, their monthly night of themed musical soundtracking. Dates vary so keep an eye on social media.
Every Wednesday we run The Big Beer Experiment – a chance for you to try something new from our Fridge Of Dreams and expand your horizons.
We have had live comedy, poetry, literary events, dance and beyond, and are always keen to host new things that fit our vibe. Get in touch if you have an idea! But, if you want to know what is on the slate right now, check below or see the event section of our Facebook page for fuller details.
