About The Tin wedding venue

The Tin At The Coal Vaults is a multi-use arts venue which doubles up as the perfect alternative wedding reception venue. The venue’s unique and intimate setting makes for a truly stand-alone and incomparable place for an event. The 18th century building, set in Coventry Canal Basin’s former coal storage building, oozes character with exposed brick walls and curved ceilings. It’s somewhat industrial style creates the perfect backdrop, giving the space a distinctive sense of charm and character whilst remaining versatile enough to be personalised and adapted to suit your taste.

The venue is set in 2 vaults, one of which contains a fully licensed bar stocked with locally sourced ales, wine and spirits with a seating area, the other with a built in stage and dancefloor. Being on one level, the entire venue is wheelchair accessible. Maximum capacity over the 2 vaults is 150, however this intimate venue doesn’t feel empty with 30-40 guests.

Although we don’t offer in-house catering (outside catering is welcome), we do offer a range of optional extras, including the use of our PA system, license extension until 2am (available Friday and Saturday), optional in-house DJ and technical equipment such as our projector and backline (piano, guitar amps, microphones, monitors).
