It means that, up until the possible revision of the Tier system on 16 December, the event will now only admit audiences from Coventry, Warwickshire, and Solihull. People from outside of these areas who have already booked tickets for dates before 16 December will be contacted for a full refund.

The Coventry City of Culture Trust will continue to review government restrictions throughout the duration of the event and will adjust these measures accordingly. 

Martin Sutherland, Chief Executive of Coventry City of Culture Trust, said:

“We are glad that Coventry Glides can go ahead, and have been working with our partners across the city and Public Health to make sure the event is safe for audiences and staff. 

“Of course, the adjustments we’ve made will mean some people can no longer participate at this time, but we’re continuing to monitor the situation and will review our approach in advance of the next announcement from government on 16 December.”
