Godiva Day 2019

Broadgate, COVENTRY, West Midlands, CV1 1LL
Godiva Day 2019

About

On Friday 20 September at 10.30am, a spectacular procession will begin from the Lady Godiva Statue in Broadgate, Coventry City Centre.


Follow our spectacular procession with colourful handmade textured banners to Priory Gardens. Hear live music, song and dance performances with adults and school children from all around the world. Enjoy tastes of traditional Coventry God cakes, Irish soda bread, Asian, African, Malaysian and Serbian treats. See, hear and admire the stories that make Coventry what it is today. Join the Godiva Sisters in their beautiful medieval and traditional costumes.

“Dame Goodyver’s Daye” was a traditional feast day given by the Guild of Cappers and Feltmakers many centuries ago and has now been revived by Coventry’s offical Lady Godiva Pru Porretta MBE.

This event has been organised by the Godiva Trust, which helps a new generation of women from Coventry’s diverse cultures better relate and reinterpret our heritage celebration with a unique identity, underpinning the City’s International role as a Centre for Peace and Reconciliation.
