Drapers' Hall


A venue for music and music education

Launched in Autumn 2021 with a season of shows supported by the National Lottery and Arts Council England, Drapers’ Hall joins the vibrant cultural landscape of Coventry, playing host to a music and events programme befitting the splendour of this newly-restored Regency building in the heart of historic Coventry.

The home of Coventry Music Service, Drapers’ Hall honours the venue’s past and future by presenting a year round music and arts programme for all ages.

Our Grade II* listed society rooms are also available for hire.

Private: One Track Minds

Drapers' Hall, Sat 11 June 2022 | 7.30pm

After the roaring success of the first ever One Track Minds in Coventry, this unique storytelling experience returns to Drapers’ Hall.

One Track Minds is a live storytelling show all about the life changing power of music. Think of it as a cross between Desert Island Discs, TED Talks and The Moth. Each night, we ask a selection of guests to share a story about a song (or piece of music) that has, in some way, changed their life. And then we play the song to our audience.

We are lucky at Drapers’ Hall to be able to remain agile due to our flexible space arrangements. Therefore, as a matter of caution and care, we have made the decision to reduce our capacity for upcoming shows by 50%. We will review this when the time is right, but for now, we want all who visit the hall – audience, staff, volunteers and artists, to feel comfortable and safe whilst attending events in our new venue. Additional provision for our current COVID-19 measures can be found on our COVID-19 policy page.
