As usual we have a great selection of live music ranging from rock and local bands to hip hop and world music.  A classical concert followed by a spectacular firework show will open the festival.

All the favourites are back including GreenSpace, Lives and Times, the Kid’s Tent and the Fools Paradise shows.

This year we have some new additions to the festival including Stand Up Comedy on Friday night and a special 60th anniversary VE celebration with the UK Glenn Miller Orchestra on Sunday afternoon.


The Godiva Carnival will be a spectacular event combining the traditional Godiva Procession and Coventry Carnival with a spectacular array of newly created floats and costumes which chart the history of Coventry through a child’s eye.


The Godiva Festival 2005 promises to be the best yet – so don’t miss it!
