What the City Could Look like if we Win City of Culture
If Coventry wins City of Culture 2021 our city could be transformed forever! The younger people in Coventry could grow up with increased job prospects, more places to eat, shop and have a thriving programme of events to enjoy within a bustling city!
Not to mention being able to showcase the fantastic places we already have including; Warwick Art Centre, Belgrade Theatre, Coventry Cathedral, Herbert Art Gallery & Museum and lots more! Coventry tourist attractions will also go up in the rankings! An investment in the city will greatly benefit all in Coventry.
Hull won the UK City of Culture 2017 and have been able to put on lots of events this year because of this. The Hull community has been able to start construction on buildings since being recognised as UK City of Culture, including; the Tidal Surge Barrier and introducing a set of Edwardian-style toilets and new designer drinking fountains. There have also been more events, new exhibitions and lots more!
According to Coventry Telegraph, Coventry tourism could grow by a third on the back of the 2021 bid.
