End of first week of #WLYC rehearsals @belgradetheatre – even got a ball in there…


So the pace is set and, after a bit of cat and mouse earlier in the week, the players have settled into their new surroundings. Cook has worked with the team increasing their fitness levels, offering players a chance to showcase their skills.  

By half time the team had certainly lived up to the boss’s expectations, performing to the best of their ability and in training they have demonstrated their tactics for the big game.  

Morale is high on and off the pitch and the team have been heard singing in the dressing room ‘We love you city’ a sound that lingers throughout the stadium.

Historic moments are constantly bursting out across the pitch, and everyone is caught up with the euphoria of the big game. As the final whistle blows at the end of the week the goals are reflected in the score line.


Unit 4 Install #fargospace

Here’s a couple of pics from my first day of install in the Unit 4 Space.  The drawings are done, enlarged, and a paper version of an ideal Coventry is starting to take shape.  I will be installing the rest of the work over the weekend, with the show opening at 4pm this coming Bank Holiday Monday.

Read-through. Rehearsals begin for #WLYC @belgradetheatre


Kicked off with the initial meet and greet, cast familiarising themselves ready for the afternoons training. Back in the dressing room Warwick and Walker spoke to the players about building their skills and tactics and developing a plan of action for the weeks ahead.
After a session with the coach, Cook, the team were on top form – only the one injury of the day – but the players are keen to push themselves ready for the big game.
What a cracking start to the season.

Excellent set build progress: We Love You City @belgradetheatre #wlyc #lovecov


Visited Belgrade Theatre wokshops today and – how exciting? – set is almost built and looking great. Got a brilliant cast and crew lined up, so we’re really looking forward to rehearsals starting on the 23rd August!
