Thousands line streets as Shore Parade ends Coventry as City of Culture

Thousands of people line the streets as a colorful carnival-style parade marked the end of Coventry’s time as the UK City of Culture.

About 1,200 noisy local artists, artists and community groups participated in the event held on Saturday.

The “This Is the City” parade was billed by the organizers as an “unforgettable and celebratory city-wide takeover”, which featured drumming throughout.

The event was divided into 12 sections: Welcome, Sanctuary, Harmony, Freedom, Peace, Utopia, Coventry in the World, City of Light, Being Human, Hope, Wonder Woman, Green Futures

Coventry was named a City of Culture in 2017 by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

The impact of the pandemic and the ongoing uncertainty caused Coventry Moves to delay the start of their schedule until May 2021.
