Our build-up programme
There’s no Greater Place than Coventry
While Coventry is gearing up to host a programme of new exciting cultural activity in 2021, the next three years is about building a strong cultural and tourism infrastructure as well as piloting new performance ideas and community projects. The Coventry Great Place Scheme aims to light up the city in new and unusual ways, displaying a rich array of national and home-grown creative innovation.
Coventry Great Place Project is supported by Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England, Historic England, Coventry City Council, University of Warwick, Coventry University, Business Improvement District and Trust funding.
Coventry’s Great Place Scheme 2018-2020
While embarking on research and development projects we are also piloting performances both entertaining and surprising in some unusual places. Coventry’s arts and heritage organisations will be helping to tell the stories of Coventry to all the people who visit, live or work here. A key ingredient is collaboration, with new partnerships, new ideas and new events, inspired by the great places and people in Coventry.
Our three strands of activity are:
- Preparing to welcome new visitors
- Piloting new festival ideas
- Celebrating Coventry’s special places and people
