Its a long time since I have been to this theatre and forgot how beautiful it was. Lovely ornate pillars as associated with these old theatres. Staff all very helpful. Easy to get to parked behind Grand Arcade and walked through. 5 minutes at the most. I went to see Full Monty and it was very good, only downside was... More

I've been to see two shows now at the Leeds Grand, The Nutcracker ballet and most recently Chicago. To get to the theatre is about a 10/15 min leisurely walk from the train station. From the street you could walk past and not realise it's there. The theatre is grand inside, living up to its name. The staff on both... More

I have spoken to our House Manager regarding the bar not being open. The Upper Circle Bar is opened once clearance has been given for the auditorium to be opened. The Stalls and Dress Circle bars are open an hour before the show starts and the other bars usually about half an hour before the performance starts I hope this... More

What a fantastic performance at a beautiful theatre. The cast, including the bad, were unbelievable in their tireless and perfect rendition of one of my favourite musicals. Well done.

Strangely, there's always an option for 'restricted view' seating when you book.... in my experience there isn't a single seat in the house which doesn't give you a full and open view of everything (maybe if there was an unusual set up for a performance it might happen, but I can't imagine how it would impair the view). The actual... More

Anyhow - the show was Fantastic!! It was even more hyped up as well with it being the last night of the run so even more crazy than... More
