Coventry A City of Culture?

Coventry is bidding to be UK City of Culture in 2021.

The City of Culture is a competition run by the Department of Culture Media and Sport every four years. The last city to win this prestigious award was Hull.

Once Coventry bid cities will be four shortlisted and taken forward to the final round later in the year.

The bid is being run by Coventry City of Culture Trust who are a charity especially set up to manage the bit process.

Coventry = Culture?

Well maybe not at the moment – but the city is certainly changing and best of luck to all those involved in the bid.

Coventry has the Belgrade Theatre, Warwick Arts Centre, a fantastic Cathedral, a buoyant musical and arts scene and the Coventry Godiva Festival which is the UK’s largest free festival.

If Coventry win it can only help the city and the local economy bring jobs to the local area.
