Coventry Improv is the Premier Improvisation Group in Coventry. The group is headed up by a wide variety of performing talents. We have a rich set of performers, from all backgrounds, who have collectively set up to perform in and around Coventry!
We perform at Baxter Baristas at the Baxter Baristas 16 Hales Street branch, at the Coventry Transport Museum on the 2nd Friday of every month.
Plus, these gigs are 100% FREE to attend. We have a donations bucket from which 100% of the donations go to our nominated quarterly local charity.

FSB Networking

FSB Networking

Full English Breakfast and drinks included

This is your opportunity to meet with other entrepreneurs, self-employed people and small business owners, to continue to network, collaborate and support each other.

Attendees will each be given 60 seconds to introduce their business in a supportive, unpressured environment.

For just £15 (inc VAT) for FSB members and £20 (inc VAT) for non-members including a breakfast, payable in advance. All welcome so why not bring a friend/colleague.

In addition, FSB representatives will be on hand to talk to you about ensuring that you get the most from your FSB membership.

As a city centre attraction there is no parking available at the Museum itself however, city centre pay and display car parks are all within walking distance.

Baxter's Dachshund Café

Baxter – Dachshund Cafe at 16 Hales Street, Baxter Baristas Coventry


Our mascot Baxter is looking to make some new friends and we'd love to welcome Coventry's Dachshunds to our popular Dachshund Café!

The day will consist of the following:

Free puppaccino for every Dachshund
Free dog treats
Ball pits and toys
Dogs will have the freedom to roam in a section of the store to meet new friends
Pop-up stall with all proceeds going to the RSCPA Coventry. 

More stalls and details to be revealed...

You will receive your time slot 7 days before the event. Each time slot is 1 hour 15mins.

Baxter can't wait to meet you all. However please do not bring your dog if they are aggressive towards other dogs or people or if they are not up to date with their vaccinations.

Dogs go free but will still need a ticket and at least 1 human/owner per dog. 🐶

BNI Networking

BNI Godiva Networking

Every Thursday at 6.45am

Come for the meeting – stay for the referrals! BNI Godiva is a vibrant networking group that meets at our venue every Thursday morning.

BNI members, on average, increase their business by at least 20% in the first year. Our chapter is a dynamic, committed group of business people who know how to refer business to each other.

We have open categories for individuals who will bring enthusiasm and integrity to our meeting. Just one person per professional specialty is allowed in each chapter.

A friendly welcome is guaranteed.

£30 per visitor, payable on the day, includes a full breakfast and the opportunity to network with high-performing business owners who are looking to pass referrals.

Search our members here to see if your category is open, then visit a meeting and lock out your competition!

If you would like to enquire about room hire at our venue for your event, or if you have any ideas you'd like to chat with us about, simply contact us and we will get straight back to you.
