Coombe Abbey have been at the heart of our Directors’ Club since 2012, sharing our artistic and educational journey, including being part of our celebrations on the night that Coventry was crowned UK City of Culture 2021.

We are passionate about cultivating links with businesses across the region, and we feel this is more important than ever as Coventry moves towards its year as City of Culture in 2021. Our Directors’ Club members work in partnership with our vibrant Theatre and have a range of opportunities to entertain clients, target new markets, reward staff, and show their commitment to the local community.

Coombe Abbey is situated in the tranquil Warwickshire countryside, within easy reach of key motorways and a short journey from Birmingham, Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon. The stunning four star hotel is surrounded by a haven of 500 acres of parkland, formal gardens and a peaceful lake.

Originally founded as an abbey in the 12th Century, Coombe Abbey Hotel is truly unique with a rich history, as one of the places where Queen Elizabeth I resided during part of her childhood. Guests will experience a touch of something different, with candlelit corridors, bespoke four-poster beds and individually designed bedchambers. With 119 rooms and wedding, conference and banqueting facilities Coombe Abbey is the ideal location for a relaxing weekend away or to celebrate the most special of occasions.

June Picken, Director of Sales at Coombe Abbey, said:

“Coombe Abbey Hotel”: have been members of the Belgrade’s Directors’ Club for the last five years. We love to be able to support the theatre and have formed a fantastic partnership which has proved mutually beneficially both to the hotel and to the Belgrade. The membership has helped to raise awareness of our brand and we have also formed some great business relationships through the networking and VIP events that we have attended. We have recently renewed our membership and look forward to another year as Directors Club members.”
