23 April 2021 - 03 May 2021 Every week
Happening between Friday 23 April and Sunday 25 April and Saturday 1 May and Monday 3 May.
Join Sir Guy of Warwick as he embarks on a quest throughout Coventry to track down his greatest foes and become a Knight.
The quest, which is told through spectacular 3D art, will let you come face to face with all manner of medieval beasts which have taken up residence at five locations across Coventry. The event starts on St George’s Day (Sir Guy was rumoured to be St George’s son) who has alleged links with Coventry. Find out more about St. George's Day events in Coventry.
The artwork, which is all inspired by the story of Sir Guy, was designed by visual artists 3D Joe and Max and will be on show throughout the City Centre over the next two weekends (23-25 April and 1-3 May). The artwork will be on show from 9am – 6pm on these days.
This adventurous and colourful trail is completely free of charge, and families are encouraged to share pictures of themselves doing the trail with the #Knightsquest on social media so everyone can follow along with their quest.
To follow along with the trail, just download the printable map.
To accompany the quest, the Time Will Tell Theatre has also created a video showcasing their dramatic reaction to Sir Guy’s various triumphs. Watch the video on YouTube.
Visitors are also reminded that, while they’re in the city centre, they must strictly adhere to social distancing guidelines, including maintaining a two-metre distance from anyone not in their household and ensuring that they don’t mingle in groups of more than six. Visitors are also asked to follow any instructions on the signage around the artwork. This is designed to ensure that people can view the artwork in a safe manner.
Many Coventry businesses have been adapting their facilities to ensure that they can be used safely, and visitors must follow any instructions given to them when inside a building or facility.
Please be aware that this event might have to be cancelled at short notice as we comply with changes to national guidance. If this event is cancelled, we will let you know both on this website and on our social media platforms.
