The team effort that went into delivering the UK City of Culture 2021 title for Coventry has been praised by the man who led the bid from day one.
The curtain has lifted on renovation work at one of Coventry’s oldest theatres now its long-term future has been secured. The Albany Theatre has signed a 25-year lease.
Pupils at Howes Primary School have been helping in the preparations for the launch of a new community-led library in Cheylesmore.
Coventry has been boosted ahead of the UK City of Culture shortlisting as several arts and culture organisations have been awarded key funding status. Arts Council England has announced its new raft of National Portfolio Organisations (NPOs) which means they receive funding and support to help ensure they can deliver art and culture in their areas.
