Coventry's Drapers' Hall to host series of concerts during ‘Independent Venue Week’

FOUR critically-acclaimed musicians and groups are set to take to the stage at Coventry’s newly-refurbished Drapers’ Hall as part of ‘Independent Venue Week’ which runs from Monday, January 31, to Sunday, February 6.

The Historic Coventry Trust has brought together a quartet of the UK’s best musical talents for live shows as the nation celebrates music venues around the country and the people that own, run and work in them.

The events at Drapers’ begin at 1pm on Wednesday, February 2, with a piano showcase from Sarah Beth Briggs to launch Mostly Piano – the venue’s new lunchtime series.

Mammal Hands, a semi-classical drums, saxophone and piano trio, will perform at 8pm on Thursday, February 3, before Dele Sosimi, one of the most active musicians on the Afrobeat scene, takes to the stage at 8pm on Friday, February 4.

Jaz Delorean, front man of Tankus the Henge, a jazz and rock inspired festival favourite, will perform a solo set at 8pm on Saturday, February 5.

Hannah Pierce, general manager at Drapers’ Hall for Historic Coventry Trust, said: “It’s an exciting time for us as we enter our first full year and, with support from Arts Council England, we’re able to present an array of musical experiences across the week.

“We want audiences of all ages to come along – maybe listen to something they wouldn’t otherwise go to and, in turn, support the artists and venue at this unique time for live music.

“It’s going to be a great week across the city, and we’re proud to be part of it.”

The three evening performances are supported by the National Lottery and Arts Council England as part of the Drapers’ Hall inaugural season of shows.
