The iconic 1950s Coventry Evening Telegraph building is a landmark. Its storeys are heavy with stories. The dusty air of the now abandoned newsroom is thick with them – flying from desk to desk soundtracked by the faint, staccato echo of the long-silenced typewriters, dashing to deliver the day’s deadline copy.

This architectural gem will host two extraordinary, site-specific productions using drama, digital, puppetry and dance to explore the city’s rich history.

One show sees the Belgrade Theatre community groups take audiences on an exciting journey against a looming deadline, around the cavernous building and through the last 50 years of Coventry life.

In the other show, Mercurial Dance offer audiences a unique cabaret inspired by their very own, personal memories. The action plays out in the Telegraph’s foyer where generations of people came to share their news with the paper.
