Coventry University is one of three principal partners of the bid, along with the University of Warwick and Coventry City Council.
This is the third time the competition has been run and entrants are hoping to follow in the footsteps of previous title holders Londonderry and Hull.

Professor John Latham, Vice-Chancellor of Coventry University said:



Coventry University is inextricably linked with the city – our buildings, staff and students are entwined with its architecture, community and culture.

We are proud to be part of the team that will take Coventry forward to the final stages.


We’ll be working to convince the judges that Coventry is a city with a great cultural heritage, a thriving arts scene, and a unique creative energy that can make us a cultural emblem for the UK on the world stage.
