Animated teaser trailer for the Show Three Minute Hereos at The Belgrade Theatre Coventry

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.
