Our first live performances of 2021 begin with April in Paris starring Joe Pasquale and Sarah Earnshaw
Next week, we’re delighted to be one of the first venues in the UK opening our doors for the first live performances of 2021.
Our Main Stage will host John Godber’s classic comedy April in Paris, led by comedy legend Joe Pasquale and West End leading lady Sarah Earnshaw.
Al and Bet are in a rut. Married for 26 years, their conversations are running dry and life has taken its toll. There’s little to look forward to apart from the odd trip to the pub.
But Bet longs to walk with the Pharaohs in Egypt, sunbathe on golden beaches and climb Alpine mountains, all fuelled by her love of magazine competitions with holidays as prizes. Finally, she wins a night away for two to Paris in April.
Will this enlightening trip to the most romantic city in the world revive and reconnect this lost couple?
While we can’t travel abroad at the moment, allow us to transport you to sunny Paris from the comfort of your seat in our auditorium.
“It’s wonderful that theatres are being brave enough to do this and it is brilliant that Coventry is letting us open April in Paris there. It’s a lovely theatre with lovely audiences. It’s always a pleasure to play there, but this will feel really special.”
We also can’t wait to welcome audiences and customers in to our beautiful, newly refurbished Belgrade Café and upstairs bar, Nineteen 58 for the first time ever. Both spaces will be open for indoor dining from Mon 17 May.
Our new offering of locally sourced food includes nachos, loaded fries and loaded salad, with delicious toppings including guacamole, tomato salsa, salsa verde, coleslaw, sour cream, crisp fried onions, shredded lettuce, pickled red onion and lots more.
For the first two weeks, make the most of these exclusive offers:
- Buy a bottle of Prosecco get a second bottle half price
- Get a bucket of beer for £20 (6 bottles)
- Order two glasses of wine and get the rest of the bottle on us

The refurbishment work has helped us to reopen and has been achieved as part of a £5.4m capital project. This is funded through the Cultural Capital Investment Fund, which is resourced from Coventry City Council, Arts Council England, Local Growth Fund and the Getting Building Fund from the Government through the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
