A foodbank charity based in Edinburgh has expressed its gratitude to Taylor Swift for her generous donation during her record-breaking weekend in the city. As over 70,000 fans flocked to Murrayfield Stadium for Taylor's inaugural date in the city, Edinburgh Food Project discovered that she was making a contribution to support the city's foodbanks.

The star attracted more than 220,000 fans to the stadium over the weekend as she performed her first UK shows of the Eras Tour. The Edinburgh Food Project took to social media to thank Taylor for her donation, stating: "As fans gathered at Murrayfield on Friday for the first of three record-breaking gigs, Edinburgh Food Project found out that Taylor Swift would be making a donation to support foodbanks across the city.

"Taylor's visit will live in Edinburgh's memories for years to come, and this gift will mean people in crisis will also feel the long-lasting impact. Thank you so much Taylor you have changed Edinburgh for good." Get your limited edition Taylor Swift OK! glossy mag here

The project also directed anyone who wished to help to its donation page, STV news reports. Bethany Biggar, director of Edinburgh Food Project, expressed her delight at the star's decision to support the foodbanks, saying: "We are thrilled that Taylor has decided to support the foodbanks and leave a lasting impact on Edinburgh. Things are really tough for a lot of people right now, so it is lovely to see someone like Taylor spreading such positivity."

The 34-year-old pop sensation delighted fans at Murrayfield Stadium with a selection of hits from her 11 studio albums over the course of three nights, from Friday to Sunday. She is now set to take her show to Liverpool, where she will perform for three consecutive nights at Anfield Stadium, from Thursday to Saturday. Following this, she will perform a single show at Cardiff's Principality Stadium on June 18, before heading to London for three consecutive shows at Wembley Stadium from June 21 to 23.

Dublin's Aviva Stadium is also scheduled to host the singer-songwriter for three nights. After a series of performances across Europe, she will return to London in August to conclude the UK and European leg of her tour.

Can you still get tickets?

While official tickets were released and snapped up back in August 2023, there are still ways to get involved - even this close to the show.

Just over a week before the Cardiff date, a number of ‘partially obstructed limited view’ tickets were released for the show. These are typically initially held back by event organisers before they know just how much of the stadium's seated capacity will be taken up by the set. Now that the UK tour is in full swing and production staff know how much space is needed they have been made available.

Fans who registered for tickets last year but missed out may receive a code from Ticketmaster to enter the site’s queue. Hopefuls will only be able to purchase last minute tickets through official sites with a code.

through third party resale sites such as Viagogo and VividSeats. Ticket prices range from as little as £469 to £1,5141 for Cardiff from Viagogo, at the time of writing. It is important to stress that many event promoters say tickets should not be resold after initial purchase and will not be valid for admittance to gigs.

Fans attending live events with tickets acquired through resale websites are advised to double check the ticket terms and conditions at the point of sale.
