ABOUT

It’s an exciting time for Coventry and we’re very excited to be right at the centre of it!

Today & Tomorrow

Since Coventry won the title of UK City of Culture for 2021 there have been some brilliant additions to the city to show the world all that Coventry has to offer. These have included exciting events, art and drama performances, family festivals, heritage improvement projects, and lots more.  There’s always something going on to keep you busy in Coventry!

 

In 2022, Coventry will host Radio 1’s Big Weekend – taking place in the War Memorial Park 27-29 May 2022.  More than 70,000 music fans are expected to come along and enjoy spectacular performances from well known artists.  The city hosted the event previously in 2018, so we’re looking forward to Coventry coming alive once more with the latest music sounds soon!

 

Coventry is an increasingly connected city and is really pulling together to mark itself out as a serious contender for international investment, residential development and student living. Nowhere is this more evident than in the city centre’s Business Improvement District (BID) which in 2018 secured a  further five year term to act as a voice for Coventry’s businesses. Over 1.2 million people have attended BID supported events within Coventry city centre – which have included major events such as the Christmas Lights Switch on and International Food Festivals featuring an array of celebrity guests.
