Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 launched on 15 May 2021 with a 365-day celebration of culture.

The cultural programme will reflect Coventry as a diverse, modern city, demonstrating that culture is a force that changes lives. Coventry is known internationally as a city of welcome, a city of activists and pioneers, peace and reconciliation, innovation, and invention, and now a City of Culture.

The British Council is the International Partner for Coventry UK City of Culture 2021, building on our partnership with the city and working with the Coventry City of Culture Trust across a broad range of disciplines and sectors in countries and regions globally. Our flagship partnerships and projects will celebrate Coventry's international spirit and create connections between people in Coventry and people and places around the world, building trust and mutuality.
