Godiva countdown begins

AS the weekend rapidly approaches and the countdown to Godiva Festival 2021 continues, the Council are keen to reinforce some key messages around the event and issue a reminder that tickets can be bought in advance to save money and get a quicker access to the site.

With the festival returning to the city attracting thousands to the city’s War Memorial Park, those intending or wanting to attend are being reminded of the measures in place, which are in line with current government guidelines, to deliver a safe and enjoyable event.

The measures include encouraging people to take regular lateral flow tests (LFT), make use of the hand sanitisation points across the site and to respect fellow festival attendees with social distancing and by wearing a face covering when accessing the site, queuing for food and drinks and for the toilets.

Coun Abdul Salam Khan, deputy leader and cabinet member for events said: “We are all looking forward to another great event for the city as the Godiva Festival returns to the War Memorial Park.

“With this in mind, we wanted to remind people of the plans and measures put in place for everyone’s safety and to ensure an enjoyable festival for everyone attending.

“It’s sure to be a great event as we continue to mark our special year as UK City of Culture and if you haven’t got your tickets yet, get them now so you don’t miss out.”

As part of the partnership for this year’s Godiva Festival, Coventry City of Culture Trust will be presenting a specially commissioned Bollywood Spectacular alongside super producer Steel Banglez on the Main Stage, plus UK Bangladeshi artists featuring as part of this year’s event.

Coventry City of Culture Trust have commissioned London Mela producers, Remarkable Productions, to programme this selection of exciting South Asian artists at the festival.
