Coventry – Our City

Coventry – Our City

Coventry – Our City

From Lady Godiva to Blitz survivor

Our history

Destruction and reconstruction

Reconciliation of nations

Grown wiser

Our industries

Weavers, watchmakers,

Bicycles, Daimlers,

Jet engines and machinery

Courtaulds, Rover, GEC


Turn that ghost town upside down

Our communities

And universities

Connecting creativity

Our identity is diversity

And arrivers from the world over

Are not sent to our Coventry

They come to see our Whittle Arch

Our festivals in the Memorial Park,

Our Transport Museum

And Coombe Abbey

Our Cathedral ruins

And art gallery

The Belgrade Theatre, the Ricoch arena

Coventry’s never been a more

Vibrant place to be

Our beautiful city,

City! City! City!
