Coventry Arts Umbrella was opened in 1955 by the Goons and serviced Coventry's music, literary and arts scene about two decades. Scene of Coventry's first folk club and links with Phillip Larkin, Two Tone and more.
This pdf file was downloaded from the Coventry Planning Department's site. I tried to link to it but somehow there was an error message, so have uploaded it here to the Umbrella Club site. It forms a interesting paper trail of planning permissions and renewals of the Queen Victoria Road premises from the early to mid 1960's and hopefully will facilitate anyone researching the arts in Coventry or the Umbrella Club itself.
