Imagine Bridge…

A new outdoor experience

A bridge appears in the centre of town. For three days, it is host to pop-up events and happenings until, on Saturday evening, the bridge becomes the setting for an extraordinary open air performance.

Gravity-defying circus acrobatics, dance, comedy, theatre and live music, inspired by local people’s stories, create a thrilling and moving montage of the courage, compassion and humour needed to bridge a divide.

Meanwhile, people in each host town and beyond come together to create their own real or imagined bridges, celebrating stories of bridge-building, bridge-burning and making a difference.

Imagined by artists, made by designers and engineers, inspired by you – Bridge is a project for our time that brings people together in unexpected and joyful ways.

Daytime events

Visit the Bridge by day and enjoy a series of free events and experiences:

Under the Bridge: The Bridge is the setting for performances, workshops and conversations, as Coventry’s artistic and community groups respond to the ‘bridge’ theme. Check out the blackboard to find out what’s happening today.

An Experience in Two Parts: Take a pair of headphones and find out the meaning of the broken bridge. As with every good story, there are two sides to listen to – you can choose to experience either or both. This experience lasts ten for ten minutes, with multiple sessions throughout the day. Check the blackboard for details.

Bridge Stories podcast: Sit in front of the bridge, watch the world go by and listen to a 10 minute podcast collection of stories collected from people in Coventry, Grantham and Worcester about bridge-building and bridge-burning.

Bridge Newsroom: Hear all the latest Bridge news and make a zine or a t-shirt in our live newsroom.
