COVENTRY Music Museum will be welcoming 2-Tone royalty next Saturday (November 4) as the popular venue celebrates its 10th anniversary.
To mark the milestone, the ‘founding father of 2-Tone’ Jerry Dammers will be making a rare appearance, performing a DJ set in the evening below the museum.
Plenty of famous Coventry musicians will be popping into the museum throughout the day to celebrate, including city band ‘Yes, Princess’, who will be performing a special acoustic set from midday.
And the celebrations will continue into Sunday, with Coventry supergroup The Dirt Road Band performing a live set at 5pm.
The music museum opened in 2013 to celebrate Coventry’s rich musical history and pioneering achievements.
Museum curator Pete Chambers BEM said: “I think when we opened some gave us a few years maximum, probably even ourselves, to be honest, there is no book on how to run a Coventry Music Museum.
“Our success is down to the amazing support from our visitors, supporters and of course our unique volunteers who we believe are the best in the business.
“Having a permanent music museum in your city is a rare thing in the UK, we are so thankful that we made this happen and here’s to many more years.”
