We’re excited to reveal highlights of the Festival of Imagineers 2018!

This is the fifth edition of the Festival of Imagineers, Coventry’s annual festival of art, design and engineering. This year visitors can walk alongside a large-scale balloon and sound installation, wonder at the spectacle of 1000 hoops suspended in Coventry Cathedral, board a converted double-decker bus that turns the city into a stage and play on the streets in our Festival finale.

A highlight of the 2018 Festival, we fill Broadgate with a cloud of luminous balloons, wafting in space, with the installation Child Hood from Collectif Coin (France). Originally commissioned by Artichoke for Lumiere London in Trafalgar Square, the balloons move gently in the wind in the city square, introducing an element of chaos into this otherwise meticulously ordered and mesmerising sound and light composition.
