Coventry City of Culture 2021

Why Coventry?

"Coventry has a history of triumphing against adversity, of coming together with a fierce but quiet pride," says the official City of Culture team. "We love our city and all too often have listened to others putting it down but now is the time to invite the world to venture past our beloved ring road and into a city with a story to tell and experiences to share.

"We weren’t sent to Coventry; we chose to come. Coventry is a city of welcome, a city of peace and reconciliation, a city of innovation and invention, a City of Culture."

Warwick's involvement

We’re supporting our region in becoming one of the most socially inclusive, culturally vibrant and economically successful in the country.

Our staff, students and community are playing a vital role in bringing Coventry’s success to life, as we celebrate the city on the national stage.
