Warwickshire and Coventry have plenty of excellent venues that host a wide
variety of different types of entertainment throughout the year, including
large spectacular events and annual festivals to smaller one-off events.
The larger tourist attractions, such as Warwick Castle and the Royal
Shakespeare Company, always have a busy events calendar. There are also many
annual festivals and carnivals throughout the county that celebrate all that
the county has to offer. Listed below are just a selection of upcoming
events and festivals that you may be interested in. However please check the
links underneath for all events in the location you're interested in.
You can also enjoy yourself at any of the many pubs, nightclubs, cinemas,
theatres, art galleries, casinos, and comedy clubs. Not to mention the many
music venues that offer live bands, classical music, dance, ballet, and
Warwick Arts Centre in Coventry is the largest arts centre in the Midlands,
attracting around 280,000 visitors a year to over 2,000 individual events
embracing music, drama, dance, comedy, literature, films and visual art.
Warwick Arts Centre is situated at the heart of The University of Warwick in
Coventry and is much more than a single venue. With six outstanding spaces
on the same site, it makes it rather unique - a concert hall, two theatres,
a cinema, gallery, conference room as well as hospitality suites,
restaurant, bookshop, gift shop and two bars.
Open every day 9am until late (except Christmas Day and New Year's day).
Address: University of Warwick, Gibbet Hill Road, Coventry, CV4 7AL.
