The Scottish Government cash has been dished out to over 80 venues in Scotland last September, when Temple was given £35,000, and this month when the Burnbank Road premises got a further £29,200.

Temple, which is home to DJs and hosts regular live sets from a wide variety of local bands and acts from further afield, has now benefited to the tune of £64,200 from the fund.

Scottish culture secretary Fiona Hyslop said: “This is an incredibly difficult time for the live music sector and it is important that we support our grassroots music venues – which are key to our rich and diverse music scene – to survive until they can reopen.
