Our Building History and Now

Our Building History and Now

Broad Street Hall opened in 2000, before becoming a charity in 2003; offering a meeting space for community groups and service providers in Foleshill. As we are not associated with the public sector or any local authorities, we have become the meeting venue of choice for the grassroots groups and new communities in Foleshill and beyond.

The old meeting hall was managed by the owner of Broad Street Windows; Alan Griffiths, who has retired from the organisation. He was supported by the Board of Trustees, other volunteers, a part-time paid Administrator, and a Paid Sessional Project Manager/Fundraiser.

Our New Hall

The new building was designed by BPN Architects. Fundraising, design, and construction has taken over five years. Funding has come from many different sources, but the largest element was provided by the Big Lottery. The building was constructed by local company, Harrabin Construction.

It was scheduled to open May 11th 2020, however due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, it was postponed until 2021.
