Coventry is the British City of Culture 2021.
The city will showcase its cultural heritage by hosting arts and events throughout the year.
It is hoped that this will play an important role in the city’s prosperity – especially after the COVID-19 pandemic.
A BBC documentary took a behind-the-scenes look at the preparations for the online event that will mark the start of the Coventry year in the spotlight.
Coventry Moves will stream online and present a range of performances from street theater, music and poetry.
Hundreds of actors and production teams have been rehearsing for months and putting the finishing touches on moments that move the city.
Watch Curtain Up On Coventry on Wednesday June 9th at 7:00 p.m. BST on BBC Four.
