Following the sell-out success of performances of Dr Blood’s Old Travelling Show this month, the Coventry Belgrade is presenting a wide range of live socially distanced experiences throughout November and December.
On Friday 13 November, Kneehigh Theatre’s David Mynne revisits a literary classic in a one-man retelling of Great Expectations.
Then, on Saturday 28 November, Yvan Silva brings live music back to the Belgrade with Crazy Little Thing Called Queen, an 'electrifying tribute to one of the world’s most iconic rock bands'.
Cult hit Solve-Along-A Murder She Wrote begins the festive season on Wednesday 2 December with a murder-mystery only you can solve.
Stage and screen star Andrew Lancel keeps the Christmas spirit going on Saturday 5 December with Jonathan Harvey’s bittersweet comedy, Swan Song.
Finally, as ever, the Belgrade will be wrapping up the festive period with two family shows. From 10 to 24 December, Imagine Theatre are back with Santa’s Christmas Rescue, their latest production for children aged from two to seven. The who has been written by Belgrade panto legend Iain Lauchlan.
Meanwhile, there’ll be plenty of on-screen seasonal silliness to look forward to in Jack And The Beanstalk Online, streaming from 1 to 31 December. Choose between watching from the comfort of your home or visiting the Belgrade for screenings on selected dates, as local favourites Iain Lauchlan and Craig Hollingsworth star in their first ever online pantomime.
These events are possible thanks to rigorous safety measures that have been put in place, including regular cleaning, contactless payment and e-ticketing. With Coventry now under Tier Twoi restrictions, patrons are reminded that, while indoors, they must remain distanced from anyone outside their own household or support bubble. Visitors will also be required to wear face coverings inside the building, except when seated.
Tickets for all of these shows are available to book now at www.belgrade.co.uk. Box-office phone lines are currently closed while staff continue to work remotely.
