Coventry is 2021’ s UK City of Culture
Coventry will be the next UK City of Culture in 2021, it has been announced.
It beat Paisley, Stoke-on-Trent, Sunderland and Swansea which were in the running for the title – which is credited with attracting major investment.
The announcement was made in Hull during the BBC’s The One Show, as the current UK City of Culture’s year-long celebration nears an end.
The competition is held every four years, with Derry-Londonderry the first winner in 2013.
