Ensuring The Twa Tams can again open its doors in 2021 for more Fun, Food & Music

by The Twa Tams Grassroots Music Venue Perth #SaveOurVenues in Perth, Scotland, United Kingdom

New stretch target

Until the Covid 19 pandemic no longer has such a devastating effect on the hospitality industry, continued funds will be essential so we can open our doors once again and continue to be a hub for our community. 


As we continue through an extended period of hospitality closures, the future of The Twa Tams, the pub sector and that of live music is once again cast into doubt.

The Twa Tams is more than a venue; it is a grassroots community filled with passionate staff, musicians from all genres, song writers, sound engineers, promoters and the locals that keep the community alive. It's a place where musicians start out their careers, experimenting whilst honing their craft on stage. One night college students will be playing their exam gigs, the next can be a charting band. Established musicians regularly frequent the crowd as well as the stage, helping craft exciting new sounds and precious memories. This has been The Twa Tams’ way of life since it’s establishment in 1975.

In 2019 the staff worked incredibly hard and secured the title of Scottish Bar Of The Year. We started 2020 by having over 70 bands play throughout January. We were then nominated for Best Scottish Gastro Pub & Scotland's Independent Bar Of The Year, and then... we had to close for lockdown.

Since then we have closed and reopened several times. Even our new, socially distanced format at less than a third of capacity is impossible to sustain long term. The venue continues to lose tens of thousands per month off the back of incalculable losses throughout lockdown.

The Twa Tams is an expensive endeavour and whilst we received grant money from Creative Scotland in October to keep us going till November, that money has now gone. To compound our issues, we haven’t had access to any Bounce Back Loans or the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme. 

We need to rely on our local community more than ever now and The Twa Tams needs your help! By donating to the venue you’ll help us survive the uncertain times ahead and also get access to some really cool online streamed events.
