Building on the great success of last year’s first ever Belgrade Unplugged event, 2014 sees us visiting a host of exciting, new locations around Coventry and Warwickshire.

Belgrade Unplugged offers an exclusive insight into the work of the Theatre. These are stripped back, rehearsed readings of plays the Belgrade will be producing in the autumn. With no sets or costumes, our cast of professional actors allow you to witness the very start of the process that turns amazing scripts into amazing stage plays.

This is an unmissable opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful and interesting locations in the region and enjoy a truly unique cultural event.

Saturday 19 July at 1pm (doors open at 12.30pm)
Belgrade Theatre’s ‘B4 Grill’, Belgrade Square, Coventry, CV1 1GS

The first Unplugged performance will be in the Belgrade Theatre’s Restaurant, B4 Grill. Join us for a lunchtime performance, where you will be able to order a drink or something to eat whilst enjoying the performance. Tickets are free.

The Establishment Bar & Grill, The Old County Hall, Bayley Lane, Coventry, CV1 5RN

The Establishment Bar & Grill is an exciting, unique bar situated in the cobbled streets of the Cathedral Quarter in the city centre. It is set in the Old County Hall which dates back to 1783 and until the mid-1980s was the main court in Coventry.

This unique location will offer an atmospheric setting to watch these readings after work. Tickets are free, special offers available for food.

Nicholas Chamberlaine Almshouses, All Saints Square, Bedworth, CV12 8NR

Built in 1840, these Tudor-style buildings are a real architectural gem. We’re hoping for a pleasantly warm, July evening and intend to take advantage of the beautiful grounds, so please feel free to bring a picnic with you to enjoy during the readings. In the event of bad weather, we will move into the Residents’ Lounge and the stunning Governor’s Hall. Tickets are free.

Wednesday 23 July from 1.30pm
Upton House & Gardens, near Banbury, Warwickshire, OX15 6HT

The Lunt Roman Fort, Coventry Road, Baginton, CV8 3AJ

The Lunt is a partially-reconstructed Roman fort dating back to AD 60. The fort was altered and reduced in size with the addition of a Gyrus – a unique Roman feature – probably used to train horses captured after the Boudican revolt.

It is in the Gyrus that the final readings of Belgrade Unplugged 2014 will take place. This atmospheric location provides the perfect backdrop for a summer’s evening picnic. In the event of bad weather, the readings will take place inside the museum – the only reconstructed wooden Roman granary in the world.
