And the winning quiz team is...

Posted on 28 March 2018

…Waiting For Jean.

Yesterday, we celebrated sixty successful years of theatrical excellence since opening our doors in 1958. The atmosphere was electric with birthday festivities and wishes throughout the whole day – which ended on a high with our Belgrade Birthday Quiz.

Thirteen teams went head to head putting their general knowledge to the test as they battled for victory – with added bonus points for their Belgrade Theatre knowledge! Also, the teams enjoyed delicious slices of our birthday cake, celebratory drinks and nibbles during the evening. The building was alive with laughter, music and excited discussion as the teams disputed their final answers. Congratulations to the winning team, who proved what clever-clogs they were with an impressive score into the hundreds!
Additionally, a huge well done to all the winners of our raffle prizes and thanks to our quiz master Chris (from for keeping proceedings on track and running a fantastic quiz.

Most importantly, we would like to say a huge thank you to everybody who took part in the quiz – as they raised an amazing £1,428 for our charitable work. This was the icing on the cake of an incredible day celebrating our 60th birthday.

The Belgrade creates theatre in the belief that it can enrich our communities and fundamentally changes peoples’ lives for the better. However, we are only able to do this with the generous support we receive.

So, if you missed out on the quiz but would like to play your part in supporting the Belgrade, you can donate £60 this year and become a Diamond Donor.

As a thank you gift, you will receive two tickers to our Diamond Anniversary Gala and acknowledgement in our foyer and one show programme. Diamond Donors who wish to make a larger donation of £160, will receive the same thank you gifts, together with your name on a clock face in our foyer.

The Belgrade Theatre Trust is a registered charity (number 219163). This means that all the money given, raised or earned is not distributed as profit but kept and reinvested in the work that we do.
