From The Rumble in the Jungle to Coventry City of Culture 2021: Henry McDonald Interviews Coventry 2021’s Creative Director, Chenine Bhathena and Pete The Builder talks about the impact of such events on localities and the construction industry

If you are Irish of a certain age, you will remember when the Pope visited Ireland in 1979. The same age group will also remember the famous Rumble in the Jungle in 1974. Whether an event is organised because of culture, sport or religion, the effect on the local area is similar. In many cases, it changes the city or place’s story and potential beyond recognition.

In this episode of Constructive Voices, Pete the Builder discusses this topic with Steve Randall. Henry McDonald chats to the Creative Director of Coventry 2021, Chenine Bhathena, in a wonderful interview that explores construction, old meets new and the integration of people and art into the heart of the place and its plans.
