Unique things to do in Coventry

Many people visit the Theatre to see the shows each season. This month the Albany Theatre features in alongside some other fantastic venues and attractions across Coventry.

"The Albany Theatre is an art deco, proscenium arch stage theatre supported by volunteers and serving the local community. Formerly Coventry’s City College building, it was opened in 1935, with Art Deco interiors and a 620-seat theatre. After the threat of closure in 2009, the theatre was saved and re-opened in 2013, re-named as the Albany Theatre, and run by The Albany Theatre Trust. The venue’s over-arching vision is ‘Arts for Life’, a programme of events and performances to promote wellbeing, community cohesion and active citizenship."

Coventry has a proud record of cultural innovation. Fifty years ago the city invented Theatre in Education while Warwick University was the first place that studied film in the UK. It would not be a stretch to say that it’s a place where artists have been reinventing the city for many centuries.
