Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre has launched a new takeaway food & drink service.

By repurposing the moveable bar used in its immersive Christmas show, Club 2B, the Belgrade’s catering team are now able to serve a selection of snacks, cakes and hot & cold drinks from the front of the building, where social-distancing markers have been set up to manage queues outside in Belgrade Square, along with a hand-sanitising station.

The Belgrade Theatre is a registered charity, which means that all the money it earns is reinvested back into the wide range of work it undertakes - from creating shows and supporting emerging artists, to its theatre-in-education work and youth & community drama groups.

As such, everyone purchasing a takeaway will be helping to secure a future for the theatre at a time when it urgently needs support, and when a number of venues - such as Nuffield Southampton Theatres - have already been forced to close their doors for good.

In a show of support for the amazing work the health service has been doing since the coronavirus reached the UK, the Belgrade is also offering a 25% discount to all NHS staff, on presentation of valid identification.

The takeaway service is open from 9am to 6pm Monday to Saturday. The menu includes breakfast baps, filled sandwiches, cakes & muffins, kids’ packs, ice-cream tubs, crisps, fruit, teas & coffees, soft drinks and full afternoon teas.

To help protect Belgrade staff and each other, customers are encouraged to use contactless payment where possible. You can also pre-order your food by calling 07505 883 530.
