Sixty Years of Storytelling

Posted on 7 February 2018

National Storytelling Week has taken the nation by storm as children and adults alike have been exchanging tales in many different places. From schools to theatres, museums to hospitals the power of spoken word has captivated individuals and the magic of stories is celebrated.

At the Belgrade we take pride in sharing stories by offering over 500 performances which reached 176,000 people attending a live performance at the Theatre last year. We endeavour to provide audience members with timeless memories from the stories they have witnessed. However, our favourite story to tell is our own beginning nearly sixty years ago when The Belgrade first opened its doors in March 1958. Over the years we have programmed exciting new drama and welcomed iconic figures such as Trevor Nunn, Ian McKellen and John Gunter.

This year we are celebrating sixty years of storytelling and continue to create theatre in the belief that it can enrich our communities and fundamentally change peoples’ lives for the better.

The Belgrade Theatre is a registered charity (number 219163) which means that all the money given, raised or earned is not distributed as profit but kept and reinvested in the work that we do. We are reliant on the continued support of our audiences, funders, corporate partners, Members and donors to ensure that we can continue to develop our artistic and educational work and remain central to the communities that we serve.

You can support the Belgrade in many ways, including:

• Making a donation when you book tickets online, in person or over the phone on 024 7655 3055

• Donating online

• Joining one of our memberships My Belgrade+ Producers’ Circle or Directors’ Club. More details here.

We are extremely grateful for your generosity and support over the years and hope you can join us for our next exciting chapter – as we head towards UK City of Culture 2021.

Thank You!
