About the Book
Coventry has a long and proud tradition
of carnival, from the Corpus Christi
processions of the 1320’s, to the
medieval cycle of mystery plays and civic
processions of the 1670’s, forming part
of the mayor’s procession inaugurating
the annual Great Show fair, to the Godiva
Carnival today, which links the heart of
the city with the annual Godiva Festival in
the city’s War Memorial Park.
This book is a photographic documentary of the Godiva Carnival 2010 produced by Imagineer productions, from the making by artists and community mas camps to the final carnival performance.
