This year the Coventry Society will be celebrating UK Civic Day on Saturday 16th June at the Priory Centre near Holy Trinity church and St. Mary's Priory ruins (at the back of Nando's).

Priory Visitors Centre

Civic Day is a national celebration of civic pride and we need your support. We will be highlighting Coventry's unique Post War architecture and planning. We believe that the future of our 1950's listed buildings can be positive. We believe we can put communities in control of the city centre and its important post war buildings. People from all around the world came to Coventry to see it Festival of Britain inspired city centre.

The free event and exhibition will run from 11am till 4pm. Guided tours and self guided tours of the near by post war architecture will be available, through out the day.
