We have nearly reached our target!

Posted on 16 December 2015


On Monday, we visited Barclays Bank (Coventry) to fundraise towards our Making Memories campaign. Barclay’s customers and staff were rewarded for their donations with a festive mince pie and Barclays Bank generously matched donations received from 1 – 14 December (up to £1,000)

We are delighted to announce that with the support of Barclays, Directors’ Club members and Belgrade Theatre audience members we have raised £4,450 – just £550 short of our target.

If you would like to donate towards the shortfall and help those last 11 families make memories this Christmas please visit or call our Box Office on 024 7655 3055.

Why is the campaign so important?

Unfortunately, there are hundreds of young children in our region like Lily, who for one reason or another simply aren’t able to experience the joy, excitement and escapism that theatre can bring at this magical time of year. Your support of our Making Memories campaign will help hundreds of children like Lily, so we would appreciate all staff helping to encourage others to:
