New mission: Warwick Arts Centre director Doreen Foster

Four years on from a major transformation—the largest in its 47-year history—Coventry's Warwick Arts Centre will reopen for live events on Friday 1 October.

Director Doreen Foster, said, "it's been quite a journey! But we're coming back with a bigger and better offer than ever before, and with a new mission to bring more people together through arts and culture.”

In its autumn and winter season, the arts centre will present Cupid’s Revenge in which New Art Club ponders the loss of real love. It can be seen on Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 October.
