What's On

From family STEAM learning to interactive exhibitions. There's something for everyone.

Spring Festival

Coventry Cathedral

22 April 2023 to 22 April 2023 (12:00 - 18:00)


Let your curiosity guide you this April, as we bring you our free Spring Festival at Coventry Cathedral! Bursting with family fun, that celebrates all things community, sustainability and food. We’ll be kicking spring off with a city-wide plant and seed swap so bring yours and trade them out for some curious oddities grown by your neighbors. Bathe in the live music and the magical sound of the harp, immerse yourself in neo-psych-jazz, watch a spectacular dance performance that takes a stand for mother earth, and then get ready to shake off the cobwebs with some good old rock n roll! Searching for a new summer outfit but don’t want to contribute to fast fashion? Adorn a fabulous new wardrobe at our Swap Shop, helping you spring-clean your closet whilst leaving your throwaway fashion mentality in 2022! Dip into stalls with local artists showcasing nature inspired fashion and illustrations, as well as local produce stalls and enjoy fresh food cooked by the Pod from 1-3pm. Soak up a ground-breaking exhibition This Fragile Earth from the Fleming Collection (4th April – 29th May) focusing on artists ahead of their time in responding to the threat of climate change. Spring Festival is delivered in partnership with The Pod & Food Union. Food Union will be hosting a city wide plant and seed swap at their stall. Bring your excess plants and seeds and trade them out for new, curious and unusual varieties grown by your neighbours. Donations for plants will also be accepted.

Venue: Coventry Cathedral

As soon as it was opened in 1962, Coventry Cathedral became a major tourist attraction, welcoming thousands of visitors each year. Tourists and pilgrims come from all over the world to experience this extraordinary building and to share something of the quest for peace and reconciliation embodied by the dramatic contrast of the Ruins and the New Cathedral. We’d love to welcome you too!
