Coventry City Council is the primary supporter of The Coventry City of Culture Trust, committing £5m in funding as well as additional resource as part of its “City Readiness” programme. This will see the Council invest in improvements to the public realm as well as supporting cultural and heritage organisations with their capital improvements in advance of 2021.
