I went to a performance of Dirty Dancing here in November. A couple who were drunk in the row behind me were talking continuously throughout the performance. The staff did nothing. I spoke to the duty manager during the interval and asked if they could be moved or told they would have to leave if they didn't keep quiet. Again... More

My first visit to the Opera was not a disappointment in any way, the theatre was 'Grand' in every possible way...what a fantastic venue we have on our doorsteps. Make any excuse to see both the Opera and this wonderful theatre

The performers at tonight's Opera North production of The Marriage of Figaro worked extremely hard and delivered a stunning performance. The evening was spoilt by squeaky / creaky seating, horrid flooring on the ground floor which did not help to dampen the noise. Staff we're not working hard enough to stop the numerous mobile phones being used around. No announcements... More

You can see some great shows at Leeds Grand. The theatre is lovely and there is always a great atmosphere. This time I went to see Dirty Dancing which was great fun with the audience singing along. There is water available in the bar as well as drinks to purchase and you can take your drinks into the theatre. Lots... More

Sick of watching my football team romp away with the Scottish Championship, it was decided that a piece of culture should fill the void on Valentine's Day.u So came about my first visit to the Grand Theatre and, indeed, opera. Now La Traviata is an opera set around a bed, basically. Well, the opera North version was. Surprisingly, I enjoyed... More

Visit The Grand fairly often - went in January to see a performance of Top Hat - a most uplifting and enjoyable performance. If you can catch it while it's still on tour it's very much worth a visit. The Grand is a wonderful old theatre but despite costly refurbishment in recent years it still has it's drawbacks. The main... More

Went a couple of months ago to see One Man, Two Guvnors, the show was fabulous and the theatre was excellent, so nice when a city or town keep their theatres and restore them, modern theatres can be nice but to see a show in an original theatre is a delight.
