Completing the Cultural Capital

Completing the Cultural Capital is a package of investment in five key venues and production spaces in Coventry that are essential for the successful delivery and reputation of the City in producing and hosting the UK City of Culture. The programme has seen one venue - "The Box" – completed and is enabling Coventry Cathedral, the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum and Daimler Powerhouse schemes to take centre stage.  This investment will develop a creative centre to engage the city’s young people with new emerging technologies, with the Belgrade Theatre, and will support historic Drapers’ Hall to become a unique music education and performance space.
