Mother’s Day is just round the corner on Sunday 22 March.

We know that sometimes it can be difficult to pick the right way to show Mum how much you appreciate her, so we’ve put together a list of some of the ways that you could treat the special mother figure in your life.  

For the chocoholic mum – The Easter Chocolate Festival at FarGo Village is back and is the perfect place to get some chocolate gifts and share a lovely day out with Mum. From cake to cookies to brownies, FarGo has everything that a chocolate-loving Mum could ask for. With independent shops, café and mini brewery onsite, there are lots of places to explore at FarGo Village after you’ve had your fill of chocolate, so it’s well worth the visit.  

Warwick Arts Centre are running one of their brilliant masterclasses: Easter Chocolate Design. Why not treat mum to an afternoon of Easter-themed chocolate design with award winning chocolatier David Greenwood-Haigh? Mum will start with real hot chocolate and finish up with her very own Easter chocolate treats to take home.  

FarGo Village Date: 4 April 

Warwick Arts Centre Date: 5 April 


For the theatre goer - The brilliant Blood Brothers is coming to the Belgrade Theatre across Mother’s Day weekend. Willy Russell’s legendary musical tells the captivating and moving tale of twins separated at birth, who grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with tragic consequences. Watch the drama unfold and feel the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, as this atmospheric performance sweeps you and Mum away.   

Date: 17-21 March 


For the Mum who loves the outdoors – There are plenty of places to visit in Coventry that offer a great outdoor experience. Why not go on a stroll around our War Memorial Park, complete with crocuses, ornamental rockery garden, two cafes to sit out and enjoy the Spring sunshine, and wide sweeping paths framed by trees? Coombe Country Park offers a woodland venture, with Capability Brown designed gardens, lakes and bird hides to wander around and enjoy. For a mum who loves adventure, why not book a day of high rope antics at Go Ape, found in the acres of Coombe Abbey woodland? With tree-top challenges and Axe throwing to get her teeth into, make it a Mother’s Day to remember.   

For the lover of tea and cake – Coventry is home to so many delicious afternoon tea offers, with something to suit every Mum’s taste. The Laura Ashley Tearoom at The Chase Hotel prides itself on its quintessentially English offer of homemade cakes, sandwiches and selection of teas with a beautiful Laura Ashley designed backdrop. The Rising Café offers afternoon tea with an American twist, featuring mini sliders; alongside The Winston, an afternoon tea which captures the flavour of England with beef, Yorkshire puddings, pigs in blankets and mini traditional British desserts; alongside the traditional afternoon tea. Coombe Abbey offers an indulgent afternoon tea experience served in the stunning Garden Room. A Sparkling and Gin afternoon tea features alongside the traditional afternoon tea, and the Knight’s afternoon tea which caters to a more savoury taste. All establishments also offer a smaller cream tea for those who would like to indulge on a smaller scale. 

For the mum who loves to make – The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum host a variety of craft and art workshops throughout the year, for a range of ages. This March they are hosting the national initiative Mother’s Who Make, an event aimed at supporting mothers who are artists and makers, in any discipline and at any stage of their personal or professional making. Every kind of maker is welcome – professional and/or passionate – writers, painters, performers, musicians, bakers, crafters, architects, historians…  

Date: 28 March 


For the Mum who likes a cocktail or two – The Botanist is one of the prettiest locations on the Coventry map. With bandstands, walls of flowers, tastefully tarnished furnishings, complete with its own stream that runs around the restaurant, it is a gorgeous place to treat mum. The Botanist is famous for its botanical cocktails and mocktails and serve up some of the most Instagram-able drinks – but that isn’t all they focus their alcohol on. There are cocktail, ale tasting and gin masterclasses available to book mum on to, to give her a taste of the Botanist with a twist.  

For the heritage lover – For a Mum who enjoys nothing more than appreciating architecture of the past, take a wander around the cathedral quarter. Walking down the cobbled streets of old Coventry, the breath-taking Coventry Cathedral takes centre stage as the pride and joy at the heart of the city. The oldest pub in Coventry, the Golden Cross, can be found next door, perfect for a refreshing drink after your stroll.  

The Mum who has the need for speed – Coventry Transport Museum is home to a range of vehicles, with an entire gallery dedicated to the fastest car in the world. Holding the World Land Speed record, the ThrustSSC broke the sound barrier in 1997 and is now admired all year round. Perfect for any Mum who loves all things fast and furious, there is also a 4D simulator that gives you a taste for what it would be like to give the world’s fastest car a test drive.   

There is so much to see and do in Coventry that we haven’t listed here. Take a look to see what else the UK City of Culture 2021 has to offer.
