Good Morning Greenman, Thank you for your response. Yes, Caroline was a very bubbly person at school and I think she was destined for an acting career, very popular at school with all of us. I was sad to read that she had passed away. I remember meeting her father just the once, at one of her birthday parties.

A few of the members may already know of me, but despite this, I wish to introduce myself. My name is Matthew Duffy and I run a blog called Coventry Culture, which you can access here I am currently developing a feature on the blog as regards to Theatres in Coventry. I know of The Belgrade and The Coventry Theatre/Hippodrome, the former opening in 1958, the latter 1844-1906-1937-2004 and of course The Criterion Theatre in Earlsdon (1961-) My question is besides the above, what other theatres were there in Coventry? I apologise if this seems like an obvious question to you clued-up members, but your help would be much appreciated. Additionally, all credit will be given to members in the feature. Thanks for your time :) Thumbs up Big grin Smile

There's the The Co-operative Theatre in Wyken which still exists, but I suspect you are after bygone theatres.

Anyone who is interested in Coventry's theatres, and others, should look out for a copy of 'Coventry's Forgotten Theatre'. The book by Ted Bottle is mainly about the Theatre Royal & Empire. Published in 2004 and costing £12.50 it's well worth having on the bookshelf.

On 27th Jan 2012 8:03pm, Dreamtime said: Hi Greenman, When you mentioned the Midland Theatre Company would you remember a gentleman by the name of Anthony John by any chance? The reason I asked is because I was at school with his daughter Caroline, and at that time her father was associated with the Midland Theatre Co. A few years later Caroline went into an acting career herself and appeared in a film with Kenneth More - Raising a Riot. I have also seen her in a couple of TV productions. She was a very attractive lady, she had a sister, Charlotte.

Morning MR, Yes, I have read that article, and I have watched her many times on TV and she was destined to follow her acting career. Always a giggle at school and very popular. Thank you for that Wave
