It's been one hell of a year, Coventry!


Assembly Festival Garden’s return this summer has been a blast, with so many amazing shows, events, activities and some truly unforgettable moments.

With close to 60,000 people joining us to experience the exciting live entertainment or get a taste of our fantastic food and drinks selection, we hope to welcome many more before our summer programme ends on 29 August 2022.
