We’re a Coventry City of Culture 2021 Club Member

Did you know that Citizen is a Coventry City of Culture 2021 Club Member?

Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture starts in May 2021. For a whole year, Coventry will celebrate the city with events, music, dance, theatre, and large-scale spectacle.

We join 140 companies across Coventry as a 2021 Club Member by donating £10,000 to the project over the last four years.

Our Head of Communications Steve Hayes said: “It’s fantastic that we’re a 2021 Club Member for Coventry City of Culture this year.

“As the largest landlord in Coventry we should definitely be showing our support for this important project.

“As well as being a 2021 Club Member and all the benefits that brings for us in terms of brand association we are also hoping to work with Coventry City of Culture’s Corporate Development Team to develop an idea for Citizen which will enable us to put our own mark on the project.

“I’m really looking forward to supporting Coventry City of Culture this year. It’s a really exciting time for Coventry!”

Nicole Malatesta, Corporate Development Manager at Coventry City of Culture Trust, added: “Coventry won the UK City of Culture title for many reasons. This includes the backing of a wide range of local and regional companies such as Citizen.

“The 2021 Club are instrumental to our ambitious plans for Coventry’s year in the spotlight, enabling us to engage national audiences, attract new visitors, and empower every Coventry resident to reap the benefits of cultural participation.

“Thank you Citizen for all our support. Funding from our 2021 Club Members will allow us to stage events which will be enjoyed by all – and demonstrate the depth of artistic talent within our area. I can’t wait to see it all start to come to life in May!”

Previous Cities of Culture have experienced a major boost in tourism and have also benefited from an increase in investors opening new businesses.
