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

The team behind the Blitz play, One Night in November, present a new musical featuring 20 classic songs from Coventry artists through the decades: 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 – 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!
