Coventry’s City of Culture celebrations captivated tens of thousands of proud citizens and visitors in a jam-packed month of performances, with PLMR Advent helping to generate huge coverage of events.

The team was on hand to support media at This is the City, the parade which celebrated around 1,000 participants in a two-hour procession of sound and colour, The Awakening, a daring aerial spectacular in Broadgate, and Our Wilder Family, a pioneering drone display in War Memorial Park which drew more than 27,000 in-person spectators.
