Coventry City, home of Coventry City Football Club, has been chosen to be the UK’s City
of Culture for 2021.
The city which is based in the West Midlands of United Kingdom is the 9th largest city in England and the 12th largest in the UK. Over the years, the University of Coventry has attracted a large number of overseas students, and has also lent the city a vibrant atmosphere.
The other thing that makes Coventry stand tall from all the cities in the UK is the fact that it is the home of Britain’s first car. Global auto brands such as Daimler, Jaguar and Peugeot have a long-standing history with the Motor City, Coventry.
In much the same way as Hull City benefited from being chosen to hold the 2017 title some four years ago, the local economy of Coventry is expected to boom.
Talking to the BBC after Coventry was declared the winner of the bid Laura McMillan, the manager of the Coventry City of Culture Trust, disclosed that Coventry would be greatly impacted by hosting the UK City of Culture 2021.
She said, “this is a win for Coventry, a win for young people and a win for diversity.”
After winning this bid there is no doubt that better days await the City of Coventry and its inhabitants. Congratulations, Coventry!
