What is the City of Culture?
The UK City of Culture is a competition run by the Department of Culture Media and Sport every four years. The winning city is given the prestigious title for one year with opportunities to fill the city with arts and cultural activities. The world will be watching Coventry in 2021!
So, why Coventry?
Coventry has a history of reinventing itself, Coventry is a city of peace, a city of innovation. From the Cathedral to the ring road, we have stories to tell and a quiet pride which can now shine! The jet engine, watchmaking, football programmes, The Specials – so much has started here and ideas will continue to grow and develop.
