Coventry Music Museum - Heritage Open Days 2018

15 September 2018
  • Location: Coventry Music Museum Rear of 74-80 Walsgrave Rd, Coventry CV2 4ED
  • Time: 10:00 - 16:00
  • Cost: FREE

The Award winning Coventry Music Museum celebrates all types of sounds that helped put Coventry and Warwickshire on the music map.


From the Coventry Carol to the Specials 2-tone music, Delia Derbyshire to The Enemy, King, Hazel O'Connor, The Primitives and Frank Ifield all have a place in this recently extended museum.

The Lennon Bench, a reproduction 1960s listening booth and a mock up of a Rude Boys bedroom all share the limelight here with a hands-on 'Music Box' interactive room. Have a go at playing a guitar or dress up in the dressing up section to be a 3 minute hero or Judge Roughneck.

The Specials and The Selecter and 2-Tone music will be celebrated as well as Delia Derbyshire in the Radiophonic display.
