[21 FEB 99] SPON END FORUM PRESS RELEASE
Spon End Millennium Wakes Week Planning Under Way

Organisation of the Spon End Millenium Wakes Week is well under way.

The event, which is to be held in the week leading up to 10 July 1999 is the first of a two part celebration of the Millennium. It will be entitled 'End of an Era' and will look back at the history of Spon End, now Coventry's oldest residential area. The second event, 'New Beginning' in July 2000 will look to the future.

The Wakes Weeks have now attracted funding from Coventry City Councils Arts Initiative as well as private sponsorship. A grant application is also to be submitted to the Lottery Millenium Fund.

Even at this early stage a number of events are already being organised for Spon End on 10 July including a fun fair, street market, beer festival and street entertainment. A number of churches and schools also plan to hold their summer fetes on that day.

Over the coming month organisers will be contacting every community organisation, school, church and business in the area to seek a commitment to organise or support an event during the Wakes Week. It promises to be the biggest event in Spon End since the original Wakes Weeks were banned over 100 years ago.

Anyone interested in getting involved, or artists and performers willing to give their time, should contact the Spon End Area Coordination Office, phone 01203 632123.
