Centenary Festival

Untitled design (5)

The main highlight of the archbishop’s visit will be a Centenary Festival at Coventry Cathedral on Saturday 5 May.

What, Where and When?

The festival will run from 10.30am to 4pm on Saturday 5th May at Coventry Cathedral.

The day will include songs, drama, exhibitions, worship, prayer stations, refreshments, children’s activities, messy church and much more. The day will appeal to adults, young people and children of all ages.

The Archbishop of Canterbury

The Archbishop of Canterbury will be joining us for the entire day. He will be taking a leading role at various points, but most of the time he will simply be enjoying the festival and chatting with people.

This year is not only the 100th anniversary of the Diocese of Coventry, it’s also the 25th anniversary of Archbishop Justin’s ordination as a priest. To mark these milestones we will be cutting a whole cake for the diocese, and a quarter cake for Archbishop Justin.

Food and Drink

Free hot and cold drinks will be served throughout the day, and there will be opportunities to purchase food in and around the cathedral site. Alternatively, you are very welcome to bring a picnic, or make use of the many nearby food outlets in the city centre.

Car Parking

There is plenty of car parking space in Coventry city centre.  For information about car parks in Coventry, click here.
