This is an amazing beautiful theatre, i love its abundance of original features. The show was amazing, we watched from a private box which was a nice touch although i think regardless of seating the view of the stage would be adequate. The theatre is close to all amenities including shops, dining, hotels and railway station. I would recommend for... More

We went to the Grand last week to see Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time”, sat in the cheap seats and, apart from being a bit cramped enjoyed the whole experience. Went again last night to see the Shawshank Redemption and this time had seats in the stalls, which should have been better, but turned out to... More

Absolutely terrific show - my boyfriend bought me tickets for my birthday and it was an amazing play - a must see! Lovely preserved theatre although it was very very hot in there, uncomfortably so, and lots of other people were getting too hot too and moving in their seats which creaked a lot and so was quite distracting.

What a fantastic theatre - beautifully preserved Victorian with original features, tiles, lights and decoration. The play Curious Incident, was superb, the set design brilliant, the actors excellent. If you haven't seen this show, then go whilst you can during the UK tour.

Booked to see the curious incident of the dog in the night time. Absolutely stunning theatre.an absolute credit to everyone who cares and loves this theatre. My daughter and I were mesmerised by the opulance and grandeur of this obviously loved theatre. We will defiantly visit again from east Yorkshire. And the play was fantastic as well.

We visit The Grand Theatre at Leeds frequently as they have a large variety of excellent shows. There is free on-street parking for evening performances only a 10 minute walk-away.

This is a lovely theatre which I visit every couple of months. There are a good selection of shows from musicals to ballets to operas. It's a beautiful building, the staff are very friendly and it's always a great experience.

We love every time we go to the Grand, My daughter loves getting a box set but as we don't go all the time we don't mind paying the price. The shows are always great and we always have an excellent time.

My Dad and I went to see Agatha Christies Witness for the Prosecution in the Civic Centre last Saturday afternoon.The architecture of the building was stunning as was the acting. It was a truly memorable experience that I haven't stopped talking about....even though we both didn't work out who the murderer was.....a tribute to the fine acting. I have also... More
