As part of the Coventry City of Culture Programme, we are pleased to welcome Ludic Rooms, who will be delivering an illuminated event, ‘Random String – The Canal Networked’, around the canal basin and along the canal corridor to electric wharf footbridge. Full details can be found here: Random String: The Canal Networked - Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 (coventry2021.co.uk)

As this will involve equipment and installations in the water and on the towpath, both will be closed whilst this event is set up and delivered.

As such the customer service facilities in the basin will not be accessible by boat. The nearest facilities are Hawkesbury Junction and the nearest winding hole is bridge 3.

Whilst this is a paid for ticketed event, we have secured a limited number of concessions for our boating customers who wish to attend. If this is of interest please contact the West Midlands enquiries team at enquiries.westmidlands@canalrivertrust.org.uk
