Learn to Skate Demonstrations

Join Henry Matthews, owner of Project Number 5, for skateboarding demonstrations and an opportunity to try it out for yourself. 

A photo of stunt performers on the steps of the Herbert Art Gallery as part of Coventry moves. On the left hand side, one performs a flip in midair. Next to him, a BMX biker balances on the back wheel of his bike on top of a bollard. Towards the right, a performer rests his head against a bollard, pushing his legs up in the air, and on the far right, the final performer is captured on a scooter in mid-air.
