About us

City of Culture

This is the year we get to celebrate Coventry UK City of Culture. A city that never gives up on itself. A city that moves. A city made better, together.

As a major partner, we're so ready to support all the exciting events that are planned for the next year.

 

As part of a city that's always on the move, we've been helping people to afford their own homes since 1884. And now we're excited to support Coventry's next moves - a programme of events designed to celebrate the richness that the city has to offer.

 

This is Coventry. Let's show the world what that means.

What's Happening?

Taking place at venues across the city – including the newly named Coventry Building Society Arena – events include theatre performances, the Turner Prize, exhibitions and installations.

Lady Godiva

Coventry’s own Lady Godiva (who sits at the heart of our brand and on our logo) is also being celebrated through modern day Lady Godivas. These women have been nominated for their activism and work in the city of Coventry.

'Energies'

Six well-known local personalities will represent six chosen ‘Energies’ for Coventry Moves on Saturday 5 June. These energies are chosen to represent the spirit of Coventry and include Resilience, Social Justice, Youthfulness, Sustainability, People Power and Innovation.

 

This spirit of Social Justice is represented by Sue Bent, the Chief Executive of The Central England Law Centre which gives free legal advice to people in the most desperate situations. It's one of the numerous community projects, charities and organisations we’ve supported across the last 12 months.
