Chief executive Laura Elliot and creative director Corey Campbell have taken up their new posts at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry.

Elliot will be responsible for overall strategy, running the commercial side of the Belgrade. She replaces executive director Joanna Reid.

Campbell, one of the three co-artistic directors of the Belgrade for Coventry’s year as City of Culture 2021, will focus on the theatre’s artistic output across both its professional and community areas. He succeeds artistic director Hamish Glen.

Elliot said, “the Belgrade has been my local producing theatre for nearly a decade. I’m inspired by its deep-rooted, nationally renowned commitment to community engagement, diversity, learning, talent development and high-quality entertainment.

“I look forward to collaborating with the team to build on the theatre’s plentiful past achievements and to propel it into an exciting, ambitious future.”
