The first 500 tickets for Faith are now available.

We're working with the diverse faith communities of Coventry to hold a mass participation event in the city, as part of Coventry's 365-day programme of UK City of Culture 2021 events.

A co-production with Coventry City of Culture Trust, Faith is our 24-hour invitation to find out what keeps each of us going, and how people of faith and of non-religious world views mark the chapters of their lives, told through music, theatre, installation and ritual.

This unique piece of theatre will tell the stories of Coventry families, unfolding an epic overarching story that will culminate in an extraordinary moment that everyone can take part in.

Our Deputy Artistic Director, Erica Whyman, who is leading the project, said: “Humans find all sorts of faith in adversity and we want to celebrate what it is that gets us through tough times and what it is that allows us to recover with joy and with hope for the future of our city."

Erica is working with Associate Director Jen Davis, Design Consultant Tom Piper, Coventry-based writer Chris O’Connell and playwright Chinonyerem Odimba.

Faith will take place on 11 September 2021 across the Coventry Sacred Space, which spans from the city centre into north Coventry and encompasses faith buildings from almost all of the major religions, as well as green and other sacred spaces. You will be able to enjoy the event while social distancing.

A limited number of first release tickets are now available and include a provisional start time. Once the event details are confirmed, bookers will be contacted with full programme details including location and start time. Further tickets will be released at a later date; visit the Coventry 2021 website for more information.
