The Belgrade’s hit 2 Tone musical is back!

Inspired by the music of The Selecter, The Specials and the 2 Tone scene, Three Minute Heroes is an affectionate tribute that was enormously successful when first produced by the Belgrade back in 2000. It now returns to the theatre, this time on the B2 stage, in a brand new production.

Welcome to Coventry – centre of the musical universe – at a time when the city’s bands ruled the airwaves. The music had to be ska and the legendary 2 Tone label was the hub of it all.

Join five local heroes as they bond, fight, love and play their way through the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. Relive those heady days if you were there the first time around and, if you weren’t, experience for yourselves why 2 Tone really put Coventry on the map.

Three Minute Heroes features a live band playing foot-stomping favourites by The Selecter and The Specials, including Gangsters, Do Nothing, On My Radio, Missing Words, A Message to You, Rudy, Ghost Town, Free Nelson Mandela and Three Minute Hero.

Age recommendation: 12+

Running time: approx: 2hrs 15mins

Exhibition: 2 Tone Captured
Burbidge Gallery, Belgrade Theatre. Saturday 4 to Saturday 25 October 2014.

The Belgrade is delighted to be hosting an exhibition of work by documentary photographer Toni Tye.

Toni’s unique photographs capture the spirit of the 2 Tone scene: the bands, the kids and the fashions.

The press night of Three Minute Heroes is being generously sponsored by Russell Scanlan.
The performance on Fri 17 Oct is being generously sponsored by Shortland Horne.

Dancing in the Auditorium

We know that some of our audiences love to get up and have a dance when they come to see musical shows at the Belgrade, and that’s fine by us in certain circumstances.

We do, however, have a number of patrons that want either to remain seated and enjoy watching the performers, or simply aren’t physically able to stand up for long periods of time.

To try to please everyone, we ask audiences to respect each other and try not to block other patrons’ views or disturbs their enjoyment. Under these circumstances audience members should re-take their seat or move into the aisle – although it should be noted that the latter may still disturb other patrons’ views.

Please note, it is unsafe to dance on the Balconies in the B2 auditorium and therefore not allowed.

Thank you for your co-operation.
