Multitude of events added to Coventry's Assembly Festival Garden programme during UK City of Culture year

THE PROGRAMME due to take place at the Assembly Festival Garden is growing ever bigger with more shows announced for the Queen of Flanders and Piccolo spiegeltents in July.

The venue opened on Thursday for a three-month residency with Coventry UK City of Culture.

The festival includes late-night entertainment from musical comedy duo Frisky and Mannish, stand-up comedy from Joanne McNally and Olga Koch and family entertainment with the Card Ninja, superhero specialists MARVELus, and more.

Tickets are available now, with others for future shows going on sale each Thursday. Assembly Festival Garden has been designed from the ground up to ensure that the safety and wellbeing of customers and staff is paramount.

It carries the ‘We’re Good to Go’ mark, meaning it can operate in line with current Government guidelines for Covid-19 and has the relevant risk assessments in place.

Capacities at venues have been reduced to facilitate physical distancing measures.

All payments at the box office, food outlets and bars are contactless to avoid unnecessary cash handling and there will be additional cleaning between shows as well as hand sanitisation stations located throughout the garden.

Visit for tickets and to keep up to date about the programme.
