Godiva Awakes Olympic event free tickets offered
Thousands of free tickets are being given away to Coventry's main Olympic celebration.
The Godiva Awakes event involves dancers, actors, musicians, pyrotechnicians, and 220 young people in a procession.
The centrepiece is a specially-built, 50-seat pedal-powered vehicle that will carry a 10m (33ft) high puppet of Lady Godiva from the city to London.
The 2,750 tickets for the 28 July show are available at the Belgrade Theatre.
A maximum of 10 tickets per person are allowed on a first come first served basis at the theatre's box office or online.
Funded by the Arts Council, the Godiva Awakes project will represent the West Midlands region at the 2012 Games.
Lady Godiva famously rode naked on horseback through Coventry in protest against high taxes, but the marionette puppet will be clothed.
