Whiteley Brooks Engineering is supporting Coventry to become UK City Of Culture in 2021. If this is successful it will bring great economic and cultural benefits to the city and the region. Hull is currently enjoying its year as UK City of Culture 2017, and £150 million is to be invested into their economy as a result.
Winning City of Culture 2021 for Coventry would change our city as we know it today. The younger generation would reap the benefits in many ways in the future: better job prospects and more of them, more places to eat and shop. Above all it will change Coventry’s reputation as a city forever.
We have a tremendous history and heritage that goes way past the fact that Coventry was hit hard during World War II. The city has a lot to showcase and shout about, from the invention of the jet engine to watch making, ribbon weaving and let’s not forget our involvement in the motor industry. Whiteley Brooks hope you too can be as enthusiastic as us for 2021!!!
