Why Coventry?

Coventry has won the UK City of Culture 2021 bid and we're delighted! Coventry is a young city that now has the opportunity to offer lots more to youths. The Midlands has never had anything like this before. We’re a city of movement and a city of peace and reconciliation and we're so excited to see what the future brings!

Take a look at what Coventry has endured over the decades and how much we have managed to achieve. From the Coventry bombings that took place to the major decline in the motor industry.
