Welcome to the 2014 Coventry Peace Festival.
I hope you will find a host of interesting things to do, places to visit and people to listen to who will remind you of the work being done here in Coventry to promote peace and reconciliation. I know there are events in the programme that will inspire you as you see fist-hand how hard different groups are working to make sure that peace and reconciliation is a key theme for the city as we keep moving forward. I would also like to say a big thank you to all who have contributed to this diverse programme – your time, effort and enthusiasm is greatly appreciated. I hope to be able to attend some of the events myself – most of the events are free – please take the time to get to at least one event in the programme if you can.
Councillor Hazel Noonan,
Lord Mayor of Coventry City
