Copper Candelabra Workshop

Time: 13:00 - 15:30

Try out a new and unusual skill at this friendly and fun beginner’s metalworking event. Spend an afternoon making an elegant, on-trend copper candelabra with homewares expert Melodie Telliez.

With exposed pipework and metal finishes popping up all over Pinterest, this workshop is a great way to try out the industrial trend. Learn basic metalwork techniques, including how to cut copper pipes, attach them together and finish them to create your own candelabra design. You'll be surprised what you can do with the right tools and don't worry, there are no hacksaws, just great fun designing and experimenting with shapes - anyone can do it!

During the session, you'll learn from Etsy based jewellery and homewares designer Melodie Telliez. She will teach you the skills you need to know and advise you on your design. Whether you follow her examples or create your own ideas, you'll leave with a host of new metalworking skills that won't require investing in a metal shop of your own. All materials will be provided.

Godiva rocks at the belgrade
Godiva Rocks

Date: 07 October 2017 - 21 October 2017

Every day

Location: Belgrade Theatre Belgrade Square Corporation St Coventry CV1 1GS

Godiva Rocks is an unmissable new musical featuring a host of hit songs from Coventry artists through the decades.

From the same team behind the smash-hit Coventry Blitz play, One Night in November, this new musical features 20 classic songs from Coventry artists such as Frank Ifield, Vince Hill, Hazel O’Connor, The Specials, Terry Hall, King, The Primitives and The Enemy.

Girl meets boy in Coventry – but nothing, and nobody, is what they seem, all because of one extraordinary night at the Orchid Ballroom, back in December ’64 …

Shady financier Leo Freeman’s decision to knock down the Orchid ballroom has far-reaching consequences – as daughter Nell meets the extraordinary Patrick Vernon – and the hunt for a missing tape reveals a history of musical passions and romantic jealousies stretching back to the dawn of musical time.

Godiva Rocks is a celebration of Coventry music from the 1950s to the present day – the greatest sounds ever from England’s Motor City!

Cost: £19 to £27 Concessions: £14 to £25
