Trish Willetts, Director at Coventry BID, comments:“We are incredibly proud and excited to be bringing the Coventry Food Festival back into our great city this July and are aiming for it to be bigger and better than ever! It’s a huge year for Coventry as UK City of Culture, and as all our great businesses start opening again as part of the Government’s roadmap to recovery post-COVID.
“We are aiming to bring some additional joy and celebration into the city centre across the Food Festival weekend, with stalls across Broadgate, demonstrations from our amazing celebrity chefs – Theo and Lesley – and some fantastic live music.
“Of course, it’s our hope that everything will be back to normal at this point, but we are also working closely with our partners to ensure we are COVID-compliant and able to welcome people back safely.”
Business want to come and invest in the city because of the work we are doing. We’re providing jobs for local people and improving the skills of young people so they can be the workforce of the future. We are dedicated to delivering the city’s economic and cultural regeneration and delivering high quality services, including provision of the city’s highways, good schools, healthy and resilient communities, refuse collection, sporting provision and cultural life.
