Imagine Bridge arrives in Coventry this September

21 August 2019

On Thursday 26 September 2019, three extraordinary days of gravity-defying circus acrobatics, dance, comedy, theatre and live music will begin in Broadgate, at the heart of Coventry city centre.

The event is created by Coventry-based company Imagineer Productions, in partnership with Coventry UK City of Culture 2021, and will be completely free to members of the public.

The three days of pop-up events and happenings will end with Bridge: An Impossible Performance? on Saturday 28 September 2019 at 20:30, a spectacular evening performance inspired by local people’s stories. This evening performance will be a thrilling and moving montage of the courage, compassion and humour needed to bridge a divide, and will consist of circus acrobatics, dance, live music and more.

Meanwhile, people in Coventry will come together with their schools and community groups to create their own real or imagined bridges and celebrate stories of bridge-building, bridge-burning and making a difference.
