There are lots of fun things to see and do in Coventry city center this Saturday, June 4.
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., downtown will come alive with music, street theater, a do-and-do marquee, an art trail and more.
Three stages, one in Broadgate, one on the HMV Empire Balcony and another outside the Central Library in Smithford Way, will host a wide variety of live music from local musicians and artists throughout the day.
Councilor Abdul Salam Khan, Cabinet Member for Events, said: “We encourage people going downtown on Saturday to take advantage of all the free entertainment planned for the Jubilee. It’s great that we can also provide a stage for the many talented local artists we have in town to showcase their talent live. There really is something to see and do for the whole family.
Between the three stages are five pieces of art to discover by local artist Katy O. Simply download the clue sheet and hunt down each piece. There is also a coloring sheet to download and enjoy. These can be found at www.coventry.gov.uk/jubilee
We have street theater throughout the city center with traveling acts such as The Red Queen, Balloonatic, Nursie and Pram, the Nutkhut Princesses and Be Prepared, each bringing their own brand of comedy and mayhem to the masses!
Want a new crown? Enter the “make and do” marquee and get started in craftsmanship. All kinds of Jubilee badges can be crafted and taken home to help your Jubilee party go off with a smile over the weekend.
Jon Hogan, Events Manager, Coventry City Council, said:
“If you prefer to sit and watch all the festivities on the big screen to celebrate the Jubilee, head to Assembly Festival Gardens. All the important moments of the jubilee are shown on a large outdoor screen alongside their usual full weekend programme”
We hope you can join us for some or all of these events around town to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
