As wealthy merchants began to seek better living conditions beyond the original boundaries of the city in the 19th century, they enlisted esteemed architect Robert Smirke, who also contributed to the design of the British Museum, to create a church for the new parish of Brandon Hill. The usage was changed to  the early 1980s as church congregations dwindled, and the building has since been an arts centre, with a large scale refurbishment of the venue in 1999 and a two-storey extension to the original building in 2017.
