Belgrade Theatre, Coventry

    At the Belgrade we create theatre in the belief that it can enrich our communities and fundamentally change peoples’ lives for the better.

    We aim to be one of the most dynamic producing theatres in the country and to offer an exciting mix of entertaining and engaging live experiences all under one roof.

    The Belgrade is the largest professional theatre in Coventry and so we act as both the city and region’s commercial and producing theatre. We are also highly respected for our groundbreaking community and education initiatives. Hamish Glen is the current Artistic Director and Chief Executive.

    We present a vibrant programme of produced, visiting and community work in our two auditoria and other spaces, which is informed by a distinctive and brave artistic policy. This policy is designed to cater to and develop the different audiences in and around Coventry, and to raise our profile as a producing theatre. We endeavour to bear witness to our community’s experiences, find a unique voice for the Belgrade in the context of the region and attract leading theatre artists – in short, re-establish the vision, radicalism and internationalism that marked the opening of the theatre in 1958.

    The Belgrade is a registered charity and receives revenue funding from Coventry City Council and Arts Council England as well as project funding from these and other government sources. The capital project was funded by Arts Council England, Coventry City Council, Advantage West Midlands and ERDF plus a number of Grant Making Trusts and Foundations, Businesses and generous individuals. The Belgrade is delighted that Coventry has been successful in its bid to become UK City of Culture 2021.
