Some exciting things to look out for…

As part of the European City of Sport celebrations there will be an event taking place every weekend. These will range from City of Sport takeovers at the big sporting clubs to smaller sporting events from clubs around the city.

Coventry Festival of Running - 17th & 24th March 2019

Coventry Food & Drink Festival 2019 - 11th & 12th May

After the resounding success of the 2018 Food & Drink Festival this year’s is set to be even bigger and better. The city centre will be a hive of activity with live cookery demonstrations, a wide selection of food and drink vendors and lots of entertainment.

Coventry Pride is scheduled again for June and with over 15,000 attendees enjoying the 2018 event it’s sure to be a fun weekend in the city.

The Wave Launch - Summer 2019

We’ve loved seeing this building taking shape over the last year but are even more excited to try out the slides. Will you be daring enough to ride the ‘Navigator’ a water park rollercoaster inside a tube or the ‘Speed Slide’ with its 20 metre drop?

And we are still waiting to hear about this year’s Godiva Festival plans. (

Phew with all this in our diaries we are not sure we will get chance to leave the City!
