Whilst many public performances have been postponed due to the pandemic, we want to keep our venue flourishing and endeavour to become a new home to many of Coventry's community and social groups.
Immerse yourself in a virtual theatre performance, see everything around you from floor to ceiling. Get the equipment (all you will need to provide is a smartphone) and you're ready.
The team at The Albany Theatre in Coventry is elated to have received the news today (12/10/2020) that they have secured a £250k grant from the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund. Without the funding, The Albany would have been forced to close at the end of the week, but thanks to the hard work and dedication of all at the theatre, they can now look forward with confidence.
The Albany is pleased to announce that Zarah Sultana, Coventry South’s new MP, has joined the Board of the Charitable Trust that manages Coventry’s Albany Theatre and Studio on behalf of the community.
"We are ready to respond with creativity and enthusiasm as soon as we know it is safe to re-open... Rest assured, as soon as we have any news about The Albany we will let you know, we are ready to play our part in the re-emergence of live theatre."
