Happy Birthday Handelsbanken!

Posted on 18 April 2018

The celebrations in Coventry continue as one of our valued Directors’ Club Members reaches a milestone birthday. Treasured members of our Directors’ Club since 2011, Handelsbanken are celebrating a marvellous ten years of business in Coventry. Founded in 1871, Handelsbanken has become one of Sweden’s leading banks with over 800 branches in 20 countries. Since commencing operations in Great Britain in 1982 Handelsbanken has developed a strong local presence with over 200 branches nationwide. The number ten seems to be the charm for Handelsbanken Coventry, recently signing a ten year lease on a bigger office space in the Enterprise Centre at Coventry University Technology Park.

Branch Manager Andy McCabe says…

“As a customer focussed, relationship bank for local individuals and businesses, we are proud to be celebrating our branch in Coventry being open for over ten years. We’d be delighted if you would visit our website, and please do contact us if you would like to find out more.”

From everyone at the Belgrade Theatre we send our warmest congratulations to Handelsbanken and wish them every success on their new location.

At the Belgrade we have also entered a new decade, as last month we celebrated sixty spectacular years of theatrical excellence.

As an acknowledgement to our sixtieth year we’re offering you the chance to become a Diamond Donor. Those who donate £60 during 2018-2019 will receive some special thank you gifts including:

 2 free tickets to our Diamond Gala on Saturday, 15 September 2018;

 Recognition in our foyer and one home-produced show programme; and

 Monthly email updates on the impact of your support and our anniversary activities.

If you would like to make a larger donation of £120, you will receive the above, as well as your name on a specially commissioned piece of public art, a watch face with your name, displayed in the theatre foyer. The watch faces make up a beautiful visual display, and are a nod to Coventry’s rich watch-making history.

2018 has already been an astonishing year for the Belgrade, with the UK City of Culture 2021 win at the forefront of our minds combined with sixtieth birthday celebrations. However, the success of the past sixty years would have not been possible without the generous support the Belgrade has received.

As a registered charity (number 219163) we are reliant on the support of audiences, members, corporate partners and donors. We can only imagine what the next sixty years will have in store for the Belgrade, why not be a part of it and become a Diamond Donor?

You can donate online, in person at Box Office, by calling 02476 846 750, or by post by downloading a Membership and Donation form from our website.
