VIDEO - Belgrade Theatre's film helps Coventry celebrate International Women's Day

TODAY is International Women’s Day 2021 and Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre has reached out to discover what the city’s inspiring women have been grateful for this year

A special video has been created featuring some of Coventry’s most inspiring women who have helped support local communities over the last 12 months.

The Belgrade has given a platform to the women who have worked tirelessly to produce events, support programmes, art, and workshops that will benefit the communities in Coventry.

They asked 28 of them what they’ve been most grateful for this year, despite the difficult circumstances we have all endured since March 2020.

Those featured include Coun Ann Lucas OBE (Lord Mayor of the City of Coventry and Holbrook ward councillor ), Joanna Reid (executive director of the Belgrade), Emma Ormerod (artistic director and CEO of Underground Lights), and Mel Smith (deputy CEO for Grapevine).

The Theatre hopes the words of these inspiring women will encourage others to find something they have been grateful for during the past 12 months.
