3 September 2021

The second session of the inquiry into major cultural and sporting events will hear from executives responsible for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, Festival UK* 2022, and the Platinum Jubilee Pageant.

MPs will consider the ambitions behind the events staged next year, the robustness of planning to overcome challenges caused by the Covid pandemic, their value to the economy, and delivery of meaningful legacies for communities.

Public engagement in these events and how programmes will reflect what people want from them will also be examined.

  • Rosanna Machado, CEO, Platinum Jubilee Pageant
  • Ian Reid, CEO, Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games
  • Martin Green, Chief Creative Officer, Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games & Festival UK* 2022
