2012 is Godiva's year and Imagineer Productions invite you to join them in counting down to her awakening in Coventry on 28 July.

To kick start the year Imagineer have released a stunning new image (shown here), created by Midlands based advertising agency Cogent Elliott, who have been working in partnership with Imagineer contributing their skills, ingenuity and resources to the project.

The image reflects the forthcoming awakening as Godiva appears out of the darkness and into the light surrounded by representations of the diverse industries of the West Midlands past, present and future that are at the heart of this once-in-a-lifetime project.

Rehearsals have also started with a number of the groups which will perform as part of the awakening in July.

In early January the eight apprentice aerialists came together for only the second time to be put through their paces and train together ahead of their performance.

 In mid January the 150 strong Godiva Awakes Choir met to begin their monthly rehearsals focussing solely on the Godiva Anthem written by BAFTA award winner Ilona Sekacz.
