VIDEO - Timeless Words Made New - the official launch of Coventry as the UK City of Culture 2021

THIS video – Timeless Words Made New – officially launched Coventry as the UK City of Culture.

It premiered at 20.21 last night and featured the words of Coventry writer George Eliot, which inspired the piece, and a new track created especially for the film by Coolie – one of Coventry’s hottest talents.

The film takes the viewer on a journey around the city led by Coolie, highlighting what being a City of Culture means to him, in a city he feels has often been overlooked.

As George Elliot’s timeless words are projected onto Coventry’s iconic mid-Century cityscape, Coolie embarks on his personal tour of his city as it as it emerges from the challenges of the past year to be UK City of Culture.

Visit for more on Coventry’s year as the UK City of Culture and all the events taking place in the next 12 months.
