Where do you fit in?
The Albany Theatre Trust’s vision is “to promote well-being through Arts for Life”. This vision, backed by rigorous and prudent financial and organisation management, gained the endorsement of Coventry City Council. The Trust now has the opportunity to re-develop the theatre and create new facilities, including a studio theatre, in an additional 10,500 square feet of newly acquired space.
The Trust is not embarking on this new development in isolation. Arts for Life is set against the background of Coventry’s emerging ten year arts strategy, and the City’s bid to become UK City of Culture in 2021.
