Anti-spiking beer mats

Last year, Tits Upon Tyne launched a project as part of our CALLED OUT campaign: to make the live music and nightlife scene safer.

Unfortunately, the precautions taken in bars and venues won’t prevent some people feeling like it’s okay to meddle with another person’s brain with chemicals. If this is to steal their wallet, date rape or simply just for amusement, it is difficult to accept the truth that this can happen to any of us. Tits Upon Tyne has launched an anti spiking campaign, recognising that something practical has to be done to help the safety of the city’s night life and live music scene. Each beer mat has a hole hand punched into it that fits a straw – this means that the beer mat can be used to go on top of any bottle or glass without falling off. This isn’t a quick fix to the problem of spiking however, it does help minimise the chances of it.

“If your drink has been spiked it’s unlikely that
you will see, smell or taste any difference. Most
date rape drugs take effect within 15-30 minutes
and symptoms usually last for several hours.”


Focusing on the music industry and local nightlife, we want to function as a social enterprise. This means self funding campaigns to benefit as many people in our community as possible. Doing it this way does not mean we exclude venues and bars who want to be involved. As a result, the price of the beer mats will be as minimal and after expenditures, all profits are either donated or reinvested back into the campaign! We are only asking for a compulsory minimum donation to cover expenditures however, if you could raise your donation price by the slightest amount, that would be amazing!

We take care of the stock and will continue to develop the designs free of charge. All you have to do is order! We have some new ideas to take this project further but we need the orders and supporters on board before we can implement them. Please get in touch with any questions you may have –
