Event details

Coventry University’s lunchtime concerts are a well-established part of the cultural life of both the university and the city of Coventry.

They have been running for nearly 20 years and have included artists from a wide variety of genres ranging from rock to jazz, from classical to electronic and from vocal to multi-instrumental.

The line-up for 2019–20 is no exception and audiences can thrill to the sound of Nadine Benjamin’s superb soprano, brighten to the colourful sound world of electro-acoustics, quicken to the virtuosity of Pete Hurst in Prog Rock, and swing to the sound of the Hammond organ – and more besides. Entry is free and concerts last for about 45 minutes.
