Saturday 2 December, 2.00 – 5.30pm.

The Coventry Evening Telegraph Building
Corporation Street, Coventry

You are invited to join C20 West Midlands for a fantastic end of year celebration as we are taken on an hour’s tour of the iconic 1959 Coventry Evening Telegraph building in Corporation Street. Bring warm clothes and your camera for a fascinating investigation into the old ways newspaper publishing was done.

This will be followed by a fascinating film programme from 3 to 5 pm,  featuring rarely seen short films about the rebuilding of Coventry and the West Midlands, and the Festival of Britain. Accompanied by festive (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) drinks and home-made mince pies, and of course enhanced by the usual convivial conversations about our shared enthusiasm for modern heritage.

You can join us at 3pm if you don’t want to do the tour – the building is not good for accessibility.

Tickets are only £5 per person, payable in cash on the day.

Everyone is welcome, including non-members, but it is essential to book as numbers are limited for security, seating and catering.

Please email to secure your place.
