Want to perform at the 2019 Festival ?

Once again we will have two dedicated entertainment stages located on Earlsdon Street.

The “Fitness, Dance and Drama” stage is ideal for dance troupes, thespians and keep fit clubs to showcase themselves and will again be located near A P Harvey Wines, just up from the Providence Street junction.

Pictured below are members of the Criterion Theatre at the 2018 Festival with their tribute to the famous Coventry born poet, Philip Larkin.

At the clock island end of the street, near The City Arms pub, the “Performance Stage” will be erected. This is ideal for – though not exclusively for – purveyors of music. Pictured below are the band “Alchemista” who not only wowed the crowds last year but also very kindly ran the stage for us.

If you would like to perform, please email our entertainment coordinator Hannah Talbot on or after 14 January:
Please note the festival does not pay performers.
