Sent2Coventry

Sent2Coventry is our annual fundraising event held at Barkers Butts RFC in July.

Started in 2012 as a one nighter, Sent2Coventry has now evolved into a weekend Biker party full of fun with free camping, hot food and Live music provided by some of the best local talent available.

Each year we raise funds for Charities nominated by our Members. To help us achieve this we line up some great bands for your entertainment on Friday and Saturday night as well as a new slot for some Comedians early on the Saturday evening. We have a ride in Bike show held on Saturday afternoon with the winner being decided by you, our guests. We are also hoping to secure the services of a few trade stalls. All this plus free camping and don’t forget, hot food is available with the obligatory Full English Brekkie to soak up those hangover blues.

What makes this event so popular is the great atmosphere coupled with music provided by some of the best bands from around these parts. All the bands give us their time free of charge and it is thanks to them that Sent2Coventry has become a must do event… we believe the bands really enjoy it too as they keep coming back!1005735_629934290359095_1503526617_n

All this was only possible thanks to our very own music man, Col Hughes. Col was the lead Guitarist in Malias who entertained us on numerous occasions. He organised the bands, equipment and put together a show to be remembered. Col has now stepped down and handed over the reigns to David Seeley, lead Vocalist in Dark Horses. David knows the ropes having played for us many times too and has provided us with a seamless transition. Thanks David.

The only thing we ask is that if you have enjoyed the bands go and see them at their next gig and show them your support.

One of my best memories from Sent2Coventry is walking around the camping field in the early hours hearing impromptu Acoustic jam sessions springing up from under canvas… these guys can’t get enough, great fun! Ian.P.
