A Different View of Coventry

The Festival of Imagineers is in Coventry 17-22nd September and as part of Journeys with “The Waste Land” we are proud to be a part of the Rear View Bus Tour.  Taking our themes of Journeys and Fragmentation, and the poem “The Waste Land” by T.S. Eliot itself, the bus will tour Coventry with passengers watching the reveal of the city from a different perspective.  Rear-facing!  Passages of the poem will be read to illustrate all things Coventry, ‘The Waste Land”, and the Festival of Imagineers!


Rear View from IOU is an interactive experience where the streets of Coventry become part of the performance. Board a custom-converted double decker bus as it becomes a mobile auditorium that turns the City into a stage, taking audiences on an unforgettable journey where familiar and not so familiar places are brought to life.

Thurs & Fri – 12pm, 1.30pm, 3pm, 5.30pm & 7pm
