What's On


A bridge appears in Broadgate, Coventry. For three days, it is host to pop-up events and happenings until, on Saturday evening, the bridge becomes the setting for an extraordinary and memorable outdoor performance. 

Due to the forecasted rain, Saturday's Impossible Performance will be at 7pm.

This is still weather permitting as fixing a broken bridge is very difficult & may become impossible in wet weather.

You can still tune into the web feed at at 8.30PM to see Friday's show.

Gravity-defying circus acrobatics, dance, comedy, theatre and live music, inspired by local people’s stories, create a thrilling and moving montage of the courage, compassion and humour needed to bridge a divide.

Meanwhile, people in each host town and beyond come together to create their own real or imagined bridges, celebrating stories of bridge-building, bridge-burning and making a difference.

Imagined by artists, made by designers and engineers, inspired by you – Bridge is a project for our time that brings people together in unexpected and joyful ways.
