QUEEN OF FLANDERS
Sponsored by Coventry Building Society
This beautiful Spiegeltent is the largest in the world, with a capacity ranging from up to 1,200 when configured facing a stage at one end. It is a two-story venue with booths around the sides in a circular embrace and an open area in the middle which can accommodate a number of different seating and stage set-ups.
It is currently used as our major performance venue, operational from 1st July – 19th September, with shows such as Choir of Man, Circolombia and Dinosaur World Live running throughout the summer. There is some availability on certain days and evenings for events.
The flexibility of the floor space means this space lends itself well to a number of different events including:
- Music gigs
- Open days
Sponsored by Severn Trent Water
The Piccolo is a unique, custom-built space with bench seating on one side of the tent. This tent is the smaller of our two tents in the Gardens and it is popular with performers and audiences alike.
It is currently our second performance venue, operational from 1st July – 10th October, focusing on shows which come in for a shorter run than those in the Queen of Flanders. This means there is more flexibility in the programme to allow for one-off events to take place in this venue.
The raised seating bank means this space lends itself well to
- Music gigs
- Awards Ceremonies
- Book readings
Located above our main bar area, the Treehouse has the best views in the Garden. It has an open floor plan with no fixed seating and a bar in the corner
Operational from 1st July – 10th October, there are some performances in the Treehouse over the course of the summer, but it is mainly used for private hires and as a public bar.
This space lends itself well to:
- Networking events
- Hospitality Packages
The Box is a 6m by 6m activation space fitted out with power and networking capabilities. It can be used for TV or video broadcasting, bespoke small-scale events, brand activation and more. It was recently used for BBC CWR broadcast live from the Garden. The Box could be used for non-audience events or activations, however, there is some room to have a few audience members attend if required.
A completely unique space in the heart of Coventry city-centre. The Festival Garden is the perfect backdrop if you are interested in running your own festival, music concert or any other big ideas. We have the capability to cordon off an area, provide tech, big screens, stages and more. This is usually a bespoke conversation to see if we can meet each other’s expectations and can include the use of the other four venues.
Just get in touch with by email at [email protected] with some info about what you have in mind and we’ll get started.
