We’re always delight­ed to report any­thing gig and food relat­ed. And of course, any way to sup­port the bril­liant Music Venue Trust is a bonus. This deli­cious and “gooey” peanut-packed prod­uct, pic­tured below, has just land­ed, espe­cial­ly to help raise mon­ey for our belea­guered live music indus­try. And it’s down to Glass Ani­mals, lovers of peanut but­ter, who teamed up with Jack­pot to design lim­it­ed edi­tion, reusable peanut but­ter pots. On gen­er­al sale 9th June 2021.

The col­lec­tion com­pris­es a lim­it­ed edi­tion pot and exclu­sive recipe sweat­shirt, avail­able on the 9th June, exact­ly 7 years since the release of Glass Ani­mals’ first album ZABA. The band are patrons of Music Venue Trust.

This part­ner­ship will help raise funds and sup­port for grass­roots music venues at a time of need for music, cul­ture, artists and their teams, and crew. Designed by Glass Ani­mals, £2 from the sale of each reusable pot will go to Music Venue Trust, the char­i­ty that rep­re­sents over 900 UK grass­roots music venues.

So how did the col­lab­o­ra­tion come about? Says Glass Ani­mals front­man Dave Bay­ley: “I’ve been eat­ing jack­pot peanut but­ter for years. There’s a jack­pot stall in a mar­ket next to my house in Hack­ney, and I loved the look of the pack­ag­ing to be honest…plus it had a quote from Grem­lins on. 

So I picked up a tub. It was deli­cious. And that’s when I start­ed read­ing the small print on the back. Each sale includes a dona­tion to Music Venue Trust, the char­i­ty which looks after grass­roots music venues.…i.e. the venues that gave us a shot in the ear­ly days when we had no idea what we were doing. The venues that need help to sur­vive but do an extra­or­di­nary amount for music cul­ture”.

Rupert Leigh, Cre­ator and MD of Jack­pot peanut but­ter adds, “It is more impor­tant than ever that grass­roots music venues and the cul­ture of music is nur­tured and sup­port­ed. With­out these venues the next gen­er­a­tion of musi­cians and artists can’t grow and emerge and become the next Glass Animals. ”
