Summer in Coventry

The start of the school Summer holidays is finally here and Coventry is going to make it the best one yet.

From July through to September, the city has a whole host of events to keep every member of the family entertained.

From fabulously free events such as “Play” at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum and “Mystical Mayhem” at Coombe Abbey, and from the “Coffee Festival” at FarGo Village to “Mischief Makers Summer Reading Challenge” at the Central Library, there is something for everyone to get involved in.

With the city’s favourite Godiva Festival returning and events such as “Rum and Reggae” at FarGo Village, Summer in Coventry offers the perfect time to get out and discover the city and its surrounding area with the family.

The listings website can be found at and includes over 100 events, attractions and ideas that people can enjoy in Coventry this summer, many of which are free.

Councillor Abdul Khan, Cabinet Member for Events, said:

“We know the summer holiday period is a time where people often spend more time with families and friends to make the most of the good weather, which we are certainly enjoying at the minute.

“By creating a direct web-link with an online listings of ideas and attractions that people can view easily and quickly will help people plan their time this summer, plus raise awareness of some venues and events that people have not visited, or been aware of previously.”

Although the majority of the programme centres on Coventry, there are also a number of ideas on local areas to the city for people to enjoy.
