The Grand Theatre
The Grand Theatre
The leading Victorian theatre architect, Frank Matcham, was
commissioned by Thomas Sergenson to build 'the best, prettiest and
cosiest theatre possible' and the Grand was opened on July 23 1894.

In 1973 the theatre was saved from demolition at a public inquiry and, in
1977, was refurbished and opened as a bingo hall.

It was bought by the Grand Theatre Trust in 1980, reopened as a theatre
on March 23 1981, and two months later was officially opened by the
Prince of Wales at a Royal Variety Show.
