Activities and events labelled as 'Taking Place In Cov 2021' have not been produced or commissioned by Coventry City of Culture Trust but are taking place during the City of Culture year.

The infamous 84 year old Widgeon Theatre Boat is back on the waterways and touring a new production of the ‘Grit of Life’ – an astonishing musical with a difference unlike those gone before. It’s a story told from different viewpoints, both past and present. The narrator weaves a tale through history and music. You will enjoy tapping feet, partaking in a quiz, listening to newly written songs by celebrated artist Rory Mcleod.

Written and Directed by John Knowles, Produced by Widgeon’s own MJ Morgan, the musical celebrates an emerging cast that includes - in order of appearance, Maisy Beth Crunden, Kristin Duffy, Hannah Harris and Patrick McHugh. The show will take you on a colourfully informative journey of the waterways from a variety of perspectives and characters.

The Widgeon Theatre Boat will be at moored at Coventry Canal Basin from Friday 9th July to Sunday 11th July 2021.

The bar will be open from on Friday from 6:00 pm- 10:00 pm, Saturday from 12:00 pm - 10:00 pm and Sunday from 12:00 pm - 8:30 pm.
