Summer Events in Coventry for Students

By ResidenceLifeAssistant 27 Apr 2024

Congratulations! You've made it to the end of the year!  You've submitted all of your coursework and completed all of your exams - but what happens now?  If you're planning on staying in Coventry for a bit longer, you may find yourself with not much to do for a few weeks or months - but don't fear, there's plenty going on!  Let us tell you about some upcoming events in Coventry!

The Hub

Watch the Coventry Half Marathon!

The Coventry Half Marathon takes place on Sunday 28th April, at 9am, starting near The Hub and leaving the city centre, before turning around and ending outside of Coventry Cathedral.  Whilst it's too late to apply to for the Half Marathon, spectators are more than welcome to watch from the sidelines and cheer on those who are participating.

You can find out more about the upcoming Half Marathon in and around Coventry on the official website - with access to the route map as well as information such as road closures on the day.

Coventry is home to a selection of different attractions, such as the Transport Museum and Herbert Art Gallery.  These places hold lots of new and different events throughout the year, meaning that if you're yet to go, there's no better time to visit!
