Share your memories of Coventry for a special archive
Coventry
Do you have special memories of Coventry? Don't let them be forgotten

BBC Coventry & Warwickshire has been collecting blitz memories for 70 Stories for 70 Years as part of Beyond the Blitz.

All of the stories have now been recorded, but we are still hearing from people who would like their memories to be put on record and remembered.

The Coventry Transport Museum and the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum would also like to hear your memories of the city.

The two museums have joined together to create the Coventry Memories website.

The stories don't have to be just from WWII, but from any occasion in Coventry's history. Did you learn to ride your bike in the War Memorial Park? Go to your first concert at the Coventry Theatre? Remember driving around the Coventry Ring Road for the first time?

Whatever the memory, the Coventry Memories website would like to hear from you - especially if you also have photographs to illustrate the story. For further information and to submit your story, please visit the website by clicking on the link below:
