Rising Up From Adversity - Just days left to see the Coventry Moves installation at the Cathedral Ruins

Tristan Harris 8th Jun, 2021 Updated: 9th Jun, 2021

PEOPLE have until the end of Thursday (June 10) to catch ‘Rising Up From Adversity’ at Coventry Cathedral Ruins.

It features 100 trees inside the ruins to represent the city’s regrowth and resilience after the devastation of the Blitz bombings.

A specially commissioned piece of music by Coventry composer Derek Nisbet accompanies the natural display.

He said: “Coventry has had its trials and tribulations over the years but has always come back stronger and that is what we tried to capture with this piece.

“I wanted to give people a place to reflect.”

It also features the voices of people who have overcome their own challenges.

Rising Up From Adversity is free to enter.
