10 years of FarGo!

We are celebrating a big birthday this year, FarGo Village is 10 Years old.  We opened our doors on 27 September 2014.

We will be celebrating with a variety of events to mark the occasion in style, a wonderful chance to reflect on our achievements because we are home to such a wide variety of talented creatives as well as original events and we are looking forward to the next ten years!

Here are a few dates for your diary. Keep checking this page for more details.

FarGo Village has been part of the Coventry community for 10 years and to celebrate our birthday we want to give back to a charity that means a lot to us all here. We always aim to bring you a wide range of carefully curated events, free or at minimal cost Throughout the summer we will have fundraising activities at our events. If you are able, we would love you to make a small donation to our chosen charity to help out local people.

Our chosen charity is  Coventry and Warwickshire Mind, who have been developing and delivering quality services with, and for, people with mental health issues for over fifty years.

CW Mind wants to help everyone with poor mental health get the support they need and the respect they deserve. This could mean having access to information, a listening ear, or more specialist support and services to help someone to live and recover from their mental health issue.
