You may have heard (and if you haven’t where have you been?) that Coventry is competing to become City of Culture 2021!
We jumped at the opportunity to be involved because well we are Coventry and we couldn’t be prouder!
And now as Coventry is such a young and diverse city we want to rally the troops in support, with our students growing with the city and exploring it every day.
What is the City of Culture?
The UK City of Culture is a competition run by the Department of Culture Media and Sport every four years. The winning city is given the prestigious title for one year with opportunities to fill the city with arts and cultural activities.
The world will be watching Coventry in 2021!
So, why Coventry?
Coventry has a history of reinventing itself, Coventry is a city of peace, Coventry is a city of innovation.
From the Cathedral to the ring road, we have stories to tell and a quiet pride which now has a time to shine!
The jet engine, watchmaking, football programmes, The Specials – so much has started here and ideas will continue to grow and develop.
