Congratulations Coventry – UK City of Culture 2021!

Coventry has been named the UK’s city of culture for 2021, a one-off opportunity to boost the economy, tourism, civic pride and access to the arts. It is a great chance aso to be in the national spotlight.

I want to congratulate Coventry –  its good news for them , and its good news for the conurbation!

The Bid was  a massive opportunity to put Coventry in the national spotlight and to create a lasting legacy to benefit the city for years to come, and you know what? Its paid off for them….I for one am very pleased that it has too…..
