“Sister Act among many others”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The Grand theatre has all the old fashioned fixtures and fitting you would expect of an old "Grand" theatre. the seats are comfortable enough and the performances are always varied to appeal to anyone and everyone. This is my theatre of choice when visiting a playhouse. A visit well recommended.

“My very favourite theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

I have literally hundreds of memories in this theatre starting with my childhood.It is the home of wonderful, plays, operas and ballets for my adult tastes. The building still amazes me even though I am a frequent visitor. The"conducted tour" is a "must do". Superb, we are so lucky to have this theatre in Leeds.

This is a fabulous theatre, recently refurbished. It has top shows as well as amateur productions and of course Opera North and Ballet. Good viewing from stalls and dress circles.

“Over priced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

A very good facility with some big productions but when will the management realise that this is not the West End. The extotionate pricing will eventually frighten all away.
