Arts & Culture in Coventry

Jun 18, 2018

Coventry is rich in arts and culture, no surprise considering the city was awarded 2021 UK City of Culture. There are plenty of places to scratch that cultural itch across the city centre and beyond.

There’s an extensive programme of regular events including gigs, theatre, visual arts, comedy, concerts and family shows happening across the city on a weekly basis.

Why not grab the popcorn and settle in for a screening at one of the city’s quality cinemas, with showings of every genre, from Hollywood blockbusters to the latest art-house flicks.

Coventry is home to some of the area’s premier arts centres, including the Warwick Arts Centre, the stunning Herbert Art Gallery Museum, and the legendary Belgrade Theatre. The city is also home to the UK’s first Shop Front Theatre and the largest annual free family music festival, Coventry is famously the birthplace of the UK ska and 2-tone scene, with iconic groups like The Specials and The Selecter tracing their roots back to Warwickshire.

The history of the genre and Coventry’s place in the UK music annals can be uncovered at the Coventry Music Museum and the 2-Tone Village.

Or you could take a journey through the city’s history from Roman occupation to the motor industry at one of Coventry’s fascinating museums.
