COVID-19 Statement

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

We have sadly been forced to postpone or cancel all ticketed events up until the end of October 2020. All customers who have purchased tickets for events during this time will be contacted by email with information about rescheduled dates and refunds.

Tickets for events beyond this date can still be purchased from our website.

Our box office and reception is closed during this period.

We are constantly monitoring Government guidelines and we are hopeful that we can restart some of our community project work in the near future. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. We miss you all!

For urgent enquiries only, please email: hello@thegrandvenue.co.uk

 

Information about refunds 

The Grand is a charitable organisation that exists for the benefit of the local community.  This will be a trying time for The Grand with so much of our activity affected by the disruption of the Covid-19 outbreak.  We would like to give you the opportunity to support our charitable work in the Ribble Valley by donating the value of your ticket in this difficult period for our industry.  Any donations received would solely contribute towards The Grand’s charitable work supporting young people, creative community projects, classes and outreach work at Clitheroe skatepark.

If the rescheduled date does not suit or you would like a refund, please contact us on hello@thegrandvenue.co.uk before the 30th May 2020. All claims must be done by this date as refunds will not be given from this point on.  Please be aware this refund process may take up to 28 days to fully complete.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we endeavour to contact all customers to inform them personally of the current situation. In the meantime, we will update any changes to events and any further information on this website.

Kind regards
The Grand Team

The Grand Official Statement: 

The Coronavirus Pandemic has caused a devastating impact to The Grand, and like many other arts organisations within our sector, we are experiencing difficult times. Government lockdown restrictions forced the temporary closure of The Grand back in March. Despite support from the Furlough Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, with the uncertainty and conditions placed on the future of large public indoor gatherings and performances, it remains very unclear as to when we can safely reopen the Venue.

It is therefore with deep sadness, we are forced into the position of considering a number of redundancies, in order to protect the future of this Charitable organisation. We are facing incredibly difficult decisions more so with such a fantastic team of staff. Together with a number of incredible providers, partners and volunteers.

‘Our hope remains that with these necessary steps, plus the end to social distancing and a potential vaccine for covid-19, that one day we will return to the vibrant, inspirational and flourishing heart in our community again!’ Steven Lancaster.
