I went to see this show at the Grand Theatre last night. The show was fabulous, the music / lighting/ effects and of course the performers was the ultimate in entertainment. What surprised me was the fact that the Grand Theatre is still so fabulous. I haven't been for a number of years (I am ashamed to say), and I... More

3 of us went to see cats. It was excellent, it's a grand old theatre, plenty of bars with fast service and friendly staff. No parking but plenty close by. Taxis outside.

Great time had by all. The building is amazing and the renovations really bring out the original deco. We sat in the pit row O and had a good view of the stage.

This play is excellent with a very strong cast. We both enjoyed it hugely and it was well worth the trip from Cambridgeshire. The visit was not without incident however... My wife and I arrived early for the play which we missed out on when it was in Cambridge. We had a pleasant drink at the bar and took our... More

Considering it's been years since I drove into Leeds I found it reasonably easy and parking almost opposite perfect. Well impressed with the ambience of the auditorium. The only small inconvenience was the bar was not big enough for the audience. Staff very helpful.

Went to see "Cats" as a family party of 8 - one of whom is disabled. Extremely helpful theatre booking clerk, who discussed the various possibilities for her. Access & seating was excellent for her in particular. Great production, full of fun and integrity.
