PCPT gained a planning approval in 2014 for a scheme for the Higgs Trust aided by Lottery Funding (HLF).

Historic Coventry Trust are promoting a revised scheme for performance and education which will still involve Coventry University and Coventry’s Music Services but comes with Arts Council funding.

Delivery of the scheme to refurbish this building which has been unoccupied for 25 years will be part of the City of Culture 2021.
