Once a lovely Building, now in desperate need of lots of TLC. Lots of Stairs, very hot. Friendly Staff.

We had a fabulous visit to the Grand Theatre! The show was amazing and venue was stunning. Only problem was the seats which were very close together in the circle and balcony, meaning there was limited leg room. Obviously they cannot change this as it is a listed building, but I would suggest either sitting on the end if a... More

What a great night of theatre, music, dance, comedy, fun, interaction, history, legend and enjoyment. Loved the wonderful Grand. Marvellous theatres and company. Touch of Lee and Herring, Horrible Histories and their own style mashed together. Anyway, smiled throughout and we thoroughly recommend it to all. Especially loved the involvement of local dancers who were amazing. And the hula hoop... More

So I went down to the theatre box office and explained the problem but it was soon rectified by the polite lady there. The theatre is full of charm and character... More

I go to Grand Theatre several times a year. It is a beautiful theatre, not too big but big enough for a good size audience. Choice of seat in stall, dress circle, upper circle and one more tier. Throughout the year shows from renowned plays, musicians, comedians, local theatre groups and plenty more variety. Disabled access is easy and wheelchair... More
