The Archbishop of Canterbury believes Coventry would ‘make the most of the opportunity’ to be UK City of Culture in 2021, if it were successful with its bid.

Justin Welby, who has links to Coventry and Warwickshire – including being appointed a canon residentiary at Coventry Cathedral in 2002, spoke at an event in London which was facilitated by Advent Communications managing director, Adam Dent.

More than 120 people attended the Coventry City of Culture’s event at The Shard where the Archbishop, who was appointed in 2012, spoke of the city’s exceptionally rich history and diversity.

The Archbishop said: “If it is the UK City of Culture in 2021, it is a place that will make the most of that opportunity, it will be a place that takes it and makes it something really, really special.”
