Godiva On The Street In Festival Teaser

The Godiva Festival is taking to the streets of Coventry tomorrow as part of efforts to make the celebrations a week-long event.

Street theatre will entertain crowds in the city centre to remind them of the larger festivities taking place next weekend at the Memorial Park.

It is part of a transition in the festival that will eventually see the celebration last a week.

This year there are activities on four days, with All Schools’ day being held on Thursday, and music, a ceilidh and a motorcade starting off the festival proper on Friday evening.

By Saturday 10 June the main events field will be a maelstrom of colour as tents holding a huge range of activities pop up.

Organisers Coventry and Warwickshire Promotions have hedged their bets with the weather this year, following two rain-soaked festivals.

There will be a healing tent, a children’s festival, a green space for environmental groups, stalls for charities and crafts and a variety of music and entertainment.

You will be able to meet staff from CWN in the Lives and Times history tent.

With the exception of a fairground, a show hosted by Kix 96 and a muster display by the fire brigade, everything else will be under canvas.

Tomorrow’s entertainment will take place in Shelton Square, Bull Yard and outside the Museum of British Road Transport, where people will be able to sit in classic cars from 10am.

Performers will also walk around the city centre, entertaining shoppers from 11am. They include Cosmic Crumpet and The Chipolatas, as well as Coventry-based clowns Wolly and Barney.
