Coventry music museum celebrates 10th anniversary 

COVENTRY Music Museum celebrated a milestone year, marking its 10th anniversary with a remarkable increase in visitors and national recognition for its curator, Pete Chambers.

The surge in visitors is attributed to several factors, including the launch of new exhibitions and the success of the BBC drama ‘This Town,’ which has shone a spotlight on Coventry’s music scene.

Pete Chambers, founded the museum in 2013, said: “We’ve definitely seen a rise in visitors over the last year, footfall has doubled and there are a number of factors which have contributed to that.

“We’ve seen growth in domestic visitors, with our overseas visitor numbers staying steady, and I think that can be put down to the national success of ‘This Town.'”

Claire England, senior destination manager at Destination Coventry, described him as a ‘brilliant ambassador’ for the city.

“Coventry Music Museum is an important asset to the tourism offer in Coventry.

“Pete is the driving force behind the museum and a brilliant ambassador for the city.

“It’s fantastic news that the national profile from the Visit England award and ‘This Town’ is helping to bring more people to the museum.”
