The Belgrade Theatre was built in 1958 as part of the reconstruction of Coventry after World War II. Holding 858 in its two-tier main auditorium, and 250-300 in the flexible, new second space, B2, it remains one of the largest regional producing theatres in Britain.
The Belgrade acquired its name in recognition and thanks for a gift of timber from the Serbian capital city of Belgrade, that was used in the construction of the auditorium. The Belgrade soon became renowned for its programme of exciting new drama and early Company members at the Theatre included Trevor Nunn, Ian McKellen, John Gunter, Joan Plowright, Michael Crawford, Frank Finlay and Leonard Rossiter, with Arnold Wesker and David Turner among the new dramatists.
The Theatre remains the major arts and cultural facility in Coventry and the only building-based professional producing theatre company in the city. It aims to present a broad spectrum of excellent work and produces a wide range of shows.
Whats On Spring/Summer Season 2018
"As you can imagine, we’re absolutely thrilled with the news that Coventry has been awarded City of Culture 2021. It’s an incredible opportunity for the city, and we’re very much looking forward to playing a major part in the year’s events.
Speaking of exciting future events, this summer all of our community groups will come together to work on a large-scale production in the former Coventry Evening Telegraph building opposite the Theatre. The production will play alongside a show from Mercurial Dance, and I’m sure it will be a fantastic spectacle.
Elsewhere in the season we have the usual mix of drama, music, musicals and comedy. I hope there’s plenty in there for you to enjoy, whatever your taste, and I look forward to seeing you back at the Belgrade this spring."
