Amplify Your Event Taking Place In Coventry UK City of Culture 2021

We were delighted to offer our free Amplify Your Event service to local event organisers during Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture.

With over 500 Taking Place In events submitted for ticketing or listing across the year, you helped us show there’s even more to Coventry & Warwickshire, beyond our year-long programme.
 
As our year comes to an end, we have now closed the Amplify Your Event service to new submissions. We will continue to support events already submitted.
 
From now on, we recommend submitting your events to the Visit Coventry listings, run by Coventry City Council. Click here to submit an event.
 
Thanks again for making this an unforgettable year for Coventry.
