Visit Coventry, The City of Culture

Welcome to Coventry where there's something for everyone from theatre, festivals and music to medieval history AND for the next 4 years they hold the title as the UK City of Culture 2021 and a host city for the Commonwealth Games 2022.

The City and council are working together to put on an extraordinary year of events and activities. With the recent win and the promise to be used to host some of the UK’s most incredible events including the Turner Prize, this also boosts investment opportunities and grows the local art sector too! It’s definitely worth booking a staycation or taking a visit if you’re local.
