Shoot Festival

A diverse new festival which platforms the best of Coventry and Warwickshire's up and coming talent






Venture - Shelton Square, CV1 1DG

Sat 6th April, 12.00-5.00pm


Venture is a steampunk inspired carousel animated by four costumed performers powered by bicycles and created by upcycling and recycling where possible. It is for children and adults alike and poses the question;

In life what is more important – the journey or the destination?

Venture forth and experience a 3D binaural sound scape accompanied by a unique quirky soundtrack. 

Each ride lasts approximately 4 minutes and can accommodate 8 people (4 children and 4 people 12yrs and above). There are two options:

  1. Venture with performers & performance (lasting approx. 15 mins, repeated four times through a  day).

2. Venture with costumed animators.

Venture has been created through our Transformations programme where young people (16 – 30yrs) who are not in employment, education or training work alongside professional artists to dream up ideas and make them happen.

Participants have been trained in roles to steward, crew and operate  Venture with the aim of gaining employment through taking on those roles when Venture tours to festivals and events. They are supported by a professional production team.

16 participants and the following designers / makers / sound engineers have contributed to the creation:

Nick Martin (Imagineer Technologies), Phil Eddolls, Brenda Buijs, Phil Tongue, John Leahy, Dave Mills, Luke Weaver, Kathi Leahy & Beth Allum

Produced by Imagineer Productions in Partnership with Media Mania


The project has been funded by Heart of England ‘Jumping Through Hoops’ & Coventry UK City of Culture Fund – The Road to 2021.
