Came across the Grand Theatre purely by chance while looking for somewhere to eat. Saw Mark Herman's "Brassed Off" which is a most entertaining play with lots of brass band music. Seats are a bit hard but good view of stage in an old fashioned theatre. Reasonable prices and good nearby parking offer.

I have seen ballets, modern musicals and plays here and NEVER been disappointed by the performers or the Theatre and Crew. Many of the lovely staff are volunteer... More
