Come to one of our public meetings

12 March 2018

At the end of March and beginning of April, we’re holding a series of public meetings to get people up to speed on what the UK City of Culture competition is, the journey we’ve been on so far, what happens next and how you can get involved. There’ll be an opportunity to pick up our brand new summary bid brochure, as well as answering any burning questions you might have.


We’re holding meetings on four different dates at various venues:


Monday 26 March. 5.30pm to 7.00pm
Canley Community Centre, Prior Deram Walk, Coventry CV4 8FT.

Thursday 12 April. 6.00pm to 7.30pm
Stoke Heath Community Centre, 14 Burroughs Close, Coventry, CV2 3QH (Fully Booked)

Wednesday 18 April. 6.00pm to 7.30pm
Central Hall, Warwick Lane, Coventry, CV1 2HA (Fully Booked)

Tuesday 15 May, 6pm to 7.30pm
Albany Theatre, Albany Rd, Coventry CV5 6JQ (Fully Booked)

If you’ve missed out on our public meetings, but you’d still like to attend one, please email and if there’s enough interest, we’ll put another meeting on.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact the team on 02476 998 221, or email
