Belgrade Theatre in association with Imagine Theatre presents

Beauty and the Beast

By Iain Lauchlan

This Christmas the Belgrade’s legendary LIVE pantomime is back and it promises to be a Beauty of a show!


This year we present the enchanting tale of Beauty and the Beast. One of the most popular panto titles ever, this long awaited production will be extra special and guaranteed to bring a touch of magic, mayhem and monstrous fun to your festive celebrations.

Things are looking bleak for beautiful Belle! Kidnapped by a frightening beast, she is locked away in a terrifying castle with little hope of escape.

But unbeknownst to her, the beast is actually a handsome prince under the curse of an evil enchantress. Only by changing his selfish ways and finding true love can he ever hope to break the spell.

Will the Beast change his ways in time? And will Belle ever get back home? There’s only one way to find out!

Written by and starring Coventry’s favourite dame Iain Lauchlan, Beauty and the Beast will feature the breath-taking sets, crazy costumes and seasonal silliness that make a trip to the Belgrade such an unmissable treat for thousands of families every year. Iain will once again be joined on stage by Craig Hollingsworth as his calamitous sidekick and together the dynamic duo will bring comedy and chaos to your Christmas celebrations!

After a year’s wait, tickets for Beauty and the Beast are selling fast! Make sure you book early to guarantee the best seats at the best price on your preferred date – it would be Beastly to miss out!

We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to the Belgrade, where Coventry celebrates Christmas.
