Welcome to this year’s festival which runs from the 23 – 26 May.  If you were hoping for jesters’ hats then you might be a little disappointed. We haven’t any!

We don’t want to try and recreate the past, we want to reflect the world around us and look to the future.

Coventry is a place where 100s of languages are spoken. We want to find ways to connect with each other, to look at the world we live in and to find moments of everyday wonder.

If it all sounds a bit worthy don’t worry. We’ve got room on our dance floor for mini Sophie Ellis Bextors or titchy Arctic Monkeys. We’ve theatre, dance, performance and hidden spaces to explore. This festival wouldn’t have happened without a host of kind-hearted Coventrians helping us.

And now it simply can’t happen without you. What is great about this city is that we’re all in it together. So lets enjoy it. Right here right now.
