FarGo is an artistically re-purposed industrial space in Coventry City Centre, designed exclusively for creative, independent businesses and like-minded visitors. Located on Far Gosford Street, a recently regenerated area with a rich cultural heritage.

We are fiercely independent! We have an eclectic mix of over 40 independent businesses based here, including a craft brewery, artisan food, vegan shop, printing, a museum dedicated to Sgt Bilko and a dedicated street food hall.

We have flexible outdoor and indoor event spaces, available to hire for charity, community, corporate and family events, we organise at least 25 events per year ranging from Vegan Markets to Peace Forums, Cheese Festivals to Vintage Home shows. We are proud to work in partnership with charities and organisations from across the area, including Coventry University, Coventry City Council, Coventry Pride, Coventry BID and Positive Youth Foundation.


Six young artists from Coventry and six young artists from Bogota have met online through the last year, sharing reflections on their cities and their priorities as street artists to develop and create new murals in each city, led by local arts organisations (Graffwerk and Jay McKeown – Coventry) and Vertigo Graffiti (Bogota).

Both cohorts have identified ownership of public space as a priority for young people, as a place to communicate, challenge and be creative.  

In September, the Coventry cohort created a new mural at FarGo Village, the mural celebrates Coventry’s history and present, with designs that update Coventry icons such as Lady Godiva in the issues of today. In January, the Bogota young artists will create their own new mural in the city with a design that reflects upon the challenges that have faced young people in Bogota over the last year, but that stands up and confronts challenges with joy and stands in solidarity with marginalised communities within their city.
