Spoken Word

The Grand has become widely known as a venue to host intimate evenings in the company of inspirational people.

From broadcasters to brain surgeons, politicians to performance artists, sports stars and media personalities, the Grand continues to attract a fascinating mix of speakers and interviews.  These events offer audience members direct access to the lives of the leaders in their fields, open up thought-provoking topics and an opportunity to share in personal stories of toil and triumph. Film and stage actor Brian Blessed loved the place so much, he became The Grand’s patron.
