Save Godiva Festival sign now

Coventry's Memorial Park has become a focal point in our city for cultural festivals and events. The Godiva Festival, in particular, regularly attracts more than 60,000 visitors each year, making a valuable contribution both to our local economy and the vibrancy of our city. Residents of the Memorial Park's local vicinity have long campaigned for this small number of festivals to be stopped, claiming 'noise and nuisance' as their reasons. We do not agree that the events held at The Memorial Park cause any undue or additional noise or nuisance to the local residents on the very few days each year they are held. Furthermore, we believe that Coventry's Memorial Park exists for the use of ALL of the people of Coventry. The Godiva Festival is a highlight in the city's cultural calendar, whose benefits to the wider population of the city far outweigh the somewhat questionable case of a very small minority. As such, festivals and events like The Godiva Festival should be protected and continue unhindered and unrestricted.

    The people living around the Memorial Park need to get a life. Why can't they take a few days out of their usual routine and come down and enjoy the festivities. I'm sure they wouldn't object if their favourite muscian was playing. It is only for a few da

    The festival brings a well needed cultural boost to the area, is a great opportunity to local bands and is a generally great day! For a few whingers to prevent this would be such a shame - it's music - in a park - of a summer evening - stop complaining!

    The godiva festival is an essential cultural event which by showcasing local music talent alongside nationally established music acts, also encourages people from inside and outside Coventry to visit local music venues. This not only promotes art and cult

    It's preposterous to even *think* of getting rid of the Godiva. It's the pinnacle of the city's events, supporting local artists, entertaining the kiddies and bringing Cov folk together for a few days.

    There are many reasons the godiva festival should be held, financially and community wise, and the numerous reasons that fall into those categories. In the case of those opposing the event, they haven't much ground to stand on with their reasons and shoul
