Belgrade Theatre Online: Something for everyone!

Published:

Belgrade Theatre Online

"Theatres, just like football clubs and churches, provide a vital role in giving all of us somewhere to gather as a community; to share our stories and to experience events together as a group. To join together in this way to hear stories, to dance or listen to live music is a human instinct as old as time so it’s only natural that we feel that sense of loss just now."

"Coventry has a long history of resilience and its ability to adapt and overcome challenges remains at the heart of our identity. We lean on this resilience now and take courage from it as we pull together and continue to sow seeds for the future."

Hamish Glen - Artistic Director


Belgrade Theatre Online: Something for everyone!

There's nothing better than a trip to the theatre with the family. The Belgrade Theatre sits in the heart of Coventry, and it is a place to be entertained and inspired. Unfortunately due to current events, the Belgrade has temporarily closed its doors to the public, which is a huge loss to theatre-goers of all ages.

In recent weeks, the Belgrade team have dedicated a lot of time and effort into maintaining their connection with their loyal customers, and have introduced a jam-packed line up of online activities and events.

There is something for everyone, and various online activities to dip in and out of throughout the week. Find a round up of our favourites below:


City Warm Ups

Every Monday at 8:30am, a video will be released on the Belgrade Theatre YouTube channel with an activity to get your week started. This could be anything from drama, dance and singing!

Monday Makes

Every Monday a new video will be released of something creatively crafty to keep your creative juices flowing during lockdown. Monday Makes are a series of weekly videos, co-curated by the Belgrade Theatre and Craft On.
