Help to make treasured memories

Posted on 3 February 2016

A visit to the theatre is a magical experience and often a treasured memory. Unfortunately, due to financial hardship, illness or isolation, many families across Coventry and Warwickshire are not able to make these memories.

Following the success of 2015’s Christmas appeal, we are extending our Making Memories campaign to run throughout the year to provide people who are facing challenging circumstances with free tickets to suitable shows at the Belgrade – whether this is the pantomime, a schools show or Shakespeare production.

To commemorate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, we are asking patrons to make a kind donation to our Making Memories campaign.

Your support will enable the theatre to offer children facing difficult circumstances, with free tickets to attend Pocket Dream in February or Much Ado About Nothing in June. Both productions bring two of Shakespeare’s well-known stories to life as you’ve never experienced them before – enabling families to experience the joy, excitement and escapism that theatre can bring.

The Belgrade Theatre Trust (Coventry) Ltd is a registered charity (No 219163), so all of the money raised and earned by the theatre is reinvested in the services it provides to the local community. Amongst other things, these services include, creating and staging high quality productions on the Main Stage and in B2, working with young people and local communities via the Community & Education Company and developing the careers of young people who want to work in the arts.
