Up Coming Events

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 chilled afternoon of live music.

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. This varies on dates so keep an eye on social media.

The Happy Mondays Comedy Club is an occaisional night featuring the best and funniest comedians from both the national circuit and local area, hosted by Chappers Comedy.

We have had live 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.

Oct 21st – Talking Heads Conversation Club. Fundraiser in aid of Prospect Hospice. Three speakers talking about a topic they are passionate about. It could be about anything: from science to nature or the arts, a piece of personal history, an individual passion, or even an abstract concept that fascinates them. The topics will be kept secret so you won’t know what’s coming, but we hope you will leave inspired, entertained and with something to think about. Tickets £3 each. For more information visit the event page.

Oct 24th – The Thursday Night Music Club with Stay Lunar + Brightr. One of Swindons brightest and most interesting indie-pop bands goes acoustic. It will be fun to see how their guitar jangle and synth formula translate. For more information visit the event page.

Nov 7th – The Thursday Night Music Club with The Astral Ponies. These splendid fellows make a wonderful blend of Victorian music hall, Americana, psychedelia and folky tunes. But it is their quintessentially English eccentricities which mark them out from the crowd, their often strange sartorial choices and their biscuit fixations. For more information visit the event page.

Nov 10th – The Sunday Social with SGO. a magical collaboration of up to 8 musicians, playing 11 different instruments, with 7 voices creating close and choral harmonic vocals.

Dance songs in an indie-pop package, done acoustic…. whatever will we think of next? For more information visit the event page.

Dec 5th – The Thursday Night Music Club with The Tamsin Quin Trio + Jol Rose. We all remember Tamsin as the areas favourite rootsy pop pixie, a wonderful blend of cheek and charm, of dulcet ballads and energetic acoustica. Well, she is still all of those things but now she has some friends with her. For more information visit the event page.

Dec 8th – The Sunday Social with Ellie Gowers + Support. Powerfully quaint songs with thought-provoking mature themes. Embedding heavy lyrical inspiration from the early greats like Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave, Ellie has produced her own folk-driven contemporary style. For more information visit the event page.

Dec 19th – The Thursday Night Music Club with Flour Babies + Illustrations. For our Christmas Thursday Night Music Club edition this year we have gone big. Very big. Yes, we have secured a very special, stripped back, acoustic show from two of the best and most exciting and progressive indie bands in town. Flour Babies make music that is an intricate weave of mercurial art-indie-prog-alternative-avant garde, whilst Illustrations have been described as “The Beach Boys on acid” due to their blend of dreamy, 60s infused psych-pop with a more modern indie vibe. For more information visit the event page.
