MEMBERS of Coventry Green Party will be welcoming the international group of activists who set out from Spain and elsewhere to hike the whole length of England.
On their journey to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow they will pass through Coventry city centre tomorrow (Saturday).
Members of the Green Party will join part of the walk, to show our support and help to raise awareness of the very real climate emergency.
They will meet at Coventry Railway Station at midday and be accompanied by Alice, the Cheshire Cat, the rabbit and bee as they dance their way through the city centre.
The march will arrive at Coventry Cathedral Ruins (Priory Street CV1 5RN) for lunch, welcome speakers and entertainment from Coventry’s Duck Thieves band.
Colourful characters will perform a 15-minute play, ‘Alice Saves the Planet from Big Oil’.
Also as part of Coventry City of Culture’s ‘Arts & Homelessness’ week, local artists and young people have created works in recycled cardboard to highlight the many millions of people around the world being made homeless by climate change.
There will be many friendly faces sharing information and offering free samosas in the Cathedral ruins from 12.30pm to 1.30pm.
The event is free and everyone is welcome.
