WELCOME TO COVENTRY
The Welcome to Coventry sign is now live!
You can now view the sign in the newly developed train station building!
The sign is located on the 2nd floor and can be accessed directly via the Warwick Road entrance.
Measuring over 2m wide and weighing around 130kg, the sign is a collaborative community textile piece made by the residents of Coventry as a symbolic 'welcome' to all those entering the City. To create the sign each participant stitched a design that represents them and why they love the city. You can view everyone's works of art and the stories behind them via our instagram @welcometocoventrysign
