Things to look forward to in Coventry in 2020

2021 is the year Coventry gears up for being City of Culture and there are a whole host of events going to be happening! Yet, there’s so much happening this year too, so we’ll get you excited by telling you what’s on offer in the city this year too!

Theatre

The highly acclaimed West End Show Six is coming to the Belgrade Theatre from June 2nd - Sunday 7th June. The Belgrade Theatre has seen some top shows coming to the city. Why not treat yourself to a show and overnight stay at the Belgrade Plaza. There’s no need to traipse all the way to London to see a good show!

Music

The Godiva Festival makes its return this year on 3rd-5th July and is going to be a weekend jam packed full of music, entertainment, comedy tents, food stalls and attractions.  That’s not the only music event to take place at the War Memorial Park this year as there’s an 80’s and 90’s club classics event taking place on the 5th September.  There are also some big name acts coming soon to Coventry including The Killers coming to the Ricoh arena on 11th June.

Sport

MotoFest Coventry on the 6th-7th June 2020 will be a two day event of motoring madness and is completely free!  The Coventry Half Marathon starts on 5th April 2020 from 8.30am. Thousands of runners will take to the city’s streets and run through historic landmarks, leafy country lanes and through the cobbled streets of Coventry.
