The Powerhouse Youth Zone is back! 

Welcome to a festival zone of brilliant young Cov talent, innovation and creativity, presented by Imagineer Productions and Media Mania from their home in Cov: the Daimler Powerhouse on Coventry Canal.

The PYZ includes a wealth of local and upcoming talent, including music on the Resonate Stage, arts and creativity from Transformations and all sorts of local talent dotted around the zone.

Have an adventure on Venture - a cycle-powered, steampunk carousel - and meet a Cov legend – the six-metre-high Lady Godiva. Imagineer’s Transformations programme will present live street art with Grit Arts, and giant puppets with Autin Dance Theatre.
