Culture Coventry chief executive Gary Hall says: “We’ve hosted shows and displays on Millennium Place outside the Museum before – but never anything like this! It is going to be a fantastic celebration of some of the most unique cars the world has ever seen – many of which were designed, engineered and built right here in Coventry. And as if that isn’t enough, international superstar supercar stuntman Terry Grant will put on the most unbelievable show right here in the square. It’s a free show, so what’s stopping you? Everyone is welcome. Let’s celebrate our city’s great transport heritage together in style.”
