UK City of Culture 2021, Coventry

Coventry has won the title of UK City of Culture for 2021 and the dates for the festivities have been confirmed as May 2021 - May 2022. It’s time for our city to take centre stage and show the world all that Coventry has to offer. Coventry has been moving people by cycle, car and peace for centuries and now we will move people through Culture. An incredible programme of activity is being run by 'Coventry City of Culture Trust' (search the Culture Diary under this name for trust led events), an independent charity that has been set up to manage the process and take the city on this exciting journey alongside many venues and event-planners across the city incorporating their work into this momentous, cultural occasion.

Coventry City of Culture Trust

Coventry City of Culture Trust

The Coventry City of Culture Trust was set up as an independent charity in 2015, with a team of 8 people in place to bid for the title of UK City of Culture 2021. Now that Coventry has won the title of UK City of Culture for 2021 and our we can confirm the festivities will run May 2021 - May 2022, we’re currently working on an exciting programme of activity and events for 2021, which we expect to announce in Autumn 2020. You can expect large-scale spectacle, music, dance, theatre and poetry as well as more intimate, celebratory cultural and heritage experiences in every ward of the city. We are also working with partners in Warwickshire, so expect that the impact will be felt within our neighbouring communities too. To see events, including contributions from event-planners city wide, (alongside those led by The Trust) in The Culture Diary, please search for the Major Event entitled 'Coventry UK City of Culture 2021'

Tate

Tate

Tate seeks to represent significant developments in art, in all areas within its remit, with artworks of outstanding quality and importance. British art is represented by artists chosen for their contribution to its history and development, rather than their nationality alone. While it has traditionally focused on art from Western Europe and North America, has recently expanded its holdings of modern and contemporary artworks from Africa, Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and South Asia. The collection is on display at Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ives and around the world in temporary and long term exhibitions, via loans. Tate rotates the displays at all its sites, giving exposure to as much of the collection as possible.

Speakeasy Bootleg Band

Speakeasy Bootleg Band

Speakeasy Bootleg Band are best described as the Northwest's premier Vintage Swing, Jive and Gatsby era band specialising in the wedding, function and corporate markets, as well as having a substantial public profile. We are not merely a transient "product" that will be gone with next breath of fashion, but a highly popular and entertaining band with personality, that has stood the test of time, is here to stay, and has a track record to prove it. We are jazzy, swingy, enjoyable and perfect for the more sophisticated and discerning of clients or just a stonking good night in the pub. Our social media profile (13K+ Twitter 2K+ FB and even a mention on Tripadviser!!), customers' comments and our website: https://www.speakeasybootlegband.com provide more than ample evidence of this.
