The tradition of this great theatre has been preserved with excellent additions to accommodate traffic flow and before show appetizers and drinks. The theatre is located in downtown London near buses and parking. There are many good restaurants nearby.

We typically see 2-3 shows per year at the Grand. They are always well performed. We've never had a bad seat ever....all seats are good. Our most recent show was Blue Suede Shoes and Roy was an amazing Elvis. Great vocals, dancing and overall, entertainment. We have tickets to see Shrek in December 2014 and we're looking forward to it.

Attended a tour during Doors Open London. I had a really good time learning about the history of the theater. I had the chance to see the different parts of the theater, including dressing room, back stage, resting room, places where props and clothes are made. I was also shown the collections of accessories, clothes and props. It is really... More

As a London native who was involved in theatre growing up I can say that The Grand is a definite must-see as a part of London's quaint culture. The line-up of shows range from classic plays to musicals to comedy show. The house itself if beautiful and seating is great regardless of where you sit. Originally a vaudeville house, The... More

Consistently fantastic shows in a classic venue for a reasonable cost. Always something on the go, be it with an annual subscription or individual events. Lastly, an extremely flexible and cooperative ticket exchange program for subscription holders. Well worth the money.

Great place and local productions are often a real find. Parking is sketchy at best .. expect a long walk and to pay dearly for it. Not enough bathrooms for women (as always) ... buying a subscription is a great way to get cheap tickets.

The Grand is quaint and there really isn't a bad seat in the house. It can be very intimate and interactive due to it's size. I generally love going to the theatre and the Grand has had some really great plays. I wouldn't get season's tickets though, as some of their plays have been a bit disappointing.

This was a concert at The Grand.Beautiful old theatre - gorgeous ceiling and no bad seats in the house. Nice bar upstairs - stairs as well as an elevator to the second level. Very friendly volunteers. Mesha was her usual brilliant self. Loved her presentation,

As a season ticket holder, I am always amazed at the various plays produced that bring so much enjoyment. There have been plays that I have disliked the characters for what they portray which proves that the actors are doing their job! The interior of the theatre is a marvel and with the upgrades that have been done, enrich the... More

On a recent trip to London we went to see 'God is a Scottish Drag Queen'. Very funny and enjoyable night.
