For Sale

On Saturday 28 July 2012 Godiva will awaken in Coventry after 1000 years.

Part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, Godiva Awakes re-imagines Godiva as a contemporary icon; an incredible 10-metre-high symbol of courage, fairness and social justice who will create a unique spectacle as she walks to London to take part in the London 2012 celebrations.

Godiva will awaken in University Square, Coventry, to a spectacular performance involving the Godiva Choir, dancers, actors, aerialists, musicians, pyrotechnicians, carnivalists and 220 young people in a procession marking the unveiling of this Godiva for the modern age. Join Godiva for this once-in-a-lifetime performance when she will be presented with her quest to deliver the Book of Intent, containing the voices of young people and their global partners, to London.

Produced by Imagineer Productions, Godiva Awakes is part of Artists taking the lead, a series of 12 public art commissions across the UK to celebrate the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, funded by Arts Council England.

Godiva Awakes is also supported by Coventry City Council and is part of the city’s 2012 programme.
