City of Culture offers free tickets for its outdoor Generate shows

Solihull Editorial 15th Jul, 2021 Updated: 15th Jul, 2021   0

FREE tickets are now available to book for Coventry’s new City of Culture open-air ‘Generate’ Festival of Community Performance during five weekends in August.

It offers the opportunity to venture outdoors, discover up-and-coming talent from across the region and access some much-needed outdoor theatre, dance and music inspired by the Royal Shakespeare Company’s successful community performance programme The Dell.

Between July 31 and August 30, Coventry City of Culture Trust and The Albany Theatre will play host to a range of high energy family-friendly community performances from groups across Coventry and Warwickshire responding to the theme of ‘freedom’ and celebrating the diversity of the city.

Generate will take place at Blue Coat Church of England School and Music College in Coventry and will include amateur theatre, dance, youth and student groups, and choirs.




Twice-daily performances kick off on Saturday July 31 and continue until Monday August 30 on the Bank Holiday weekend at 2pm and 6pm each day.

Visitors, including families, festival-goers and theatre fans, are invited to bring a picnic for a relaxed afternoon or evening in an outdoors setting. Food will also be available to purchase and there will be a bar.
