Coventry Pride also hosts events almost every week of the year, running support groups for LGBT+ communities and promoting local LGBT+ initiatives, businesses and fundraisers.

4. Visiting between 1 July and mid-October? Don’t miss the festival vibe at Assembly Festival Garden, the centrepiece of City of Culture events, including cabaret, circus events, comedy and children’s shows.
