Our final bid has been sent to London!

2 October 2017

The bid is in! We were ‘sent to London’ to deliver the printed bids to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). The team have worked incredibly hard on the final document, and it is something we are incredibly proud of. We want to take this opportunity to thank all our supporters from the public, our partners, our sponsors and the wider region, we couldn’t have done this without your passion and enthusiasm!

Watch the clip of our journey to London…

Laura McMillan, manager of the Coventry City of Culture Trust: “Two years of work have gone into this bid and we couldn’t be more proud of the city or more grateful to everyone who has played a part in it.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Coventry to tell its story of reinvention, of resilience, of peace and reconciliation and of youth and diversity to the whole world so we really need this for the city in 2021.”

Keep your fingers crossed for Coventry as we find out who wins the bid in December!
