Godiva Rocks is an unmissable new musical featuring a host of hit songs from Coventry artists through the decades.

From the same team behind the smash-hit Coventry Blitz play, One Night in November, this new musical features 20 classic songs from Coventry artists such as Frank Ifield, Vince Hill, Hazel O’Connor, The Specials, Terry Hall, King, The Primitives and The Enemy.

Girl meets boy in Coventry – but nothing, and nobody, is what they seem, all because of one extraordinary night at the Orchid Ballroom, back in December ’64 …

The story switches back and forth between the mid 1960s and the mid 1980s as shady financier Leo Freeman’s decision to knock down the Orchid ballroom has far-reaching consequences. His daughter Nell meets the extraordinary Patrick Vernon – and the hunt for a missing tape reveals a history of musical passions and romantic jealousies stretching back to the dawn of musical time.

Godiva Rocks is a celebration of Coventry music from the 1950s to the present day – the greatest sounds ever from England’s Motor City!
