COVID-19 Statement

The Grand is currently closed due to the ongoing restrictions placed on indoor venues in light of the Covid-19 outbreak.

The latest developments and reintroduction of lockdown measures from the UK government have sadly put paid to our hopes to come back with a limited programme of events this autumn. We continue to monitor the situation day-by-day but it looks like early 2021 before we can facilitate the return of regular projects and events.

This pandemic has brought some very painful decisions for us as a Charitable organisation, allied with many others in the arts sector, who face similar challenges.

However, our aim to bring people together and inspire positive community spirit again remains a priority.

If you have outstanding tickets purchased for an event at The Grand before the end of 2020, we will contact you with either information of a rescheduled date or a full refund.

We appreciate that The Grand means a lot to a vibrant community of people. We have sorely missed feeling the energy of our wider staff team, volunteers, artists, audiences, families, singers, dancers, participants and school groups – even more so as we run up to Christmas, the busiest and most magical season in the life of the venue.

We hope and pray for better times ahead in 2021, when we can reopen our doors and welcome people back to The Grand.

In the meantime, stay safe and take care of each other.

Kind regards

The Grand Team
