Children’s show DEAR SANTA LIVE will run from Sunday 20 – Thursday 24 December at various times, please see the website.

From the author of the well-loved children’s book DEAR ZOO by Rod Campbell. Santa is determined to deliver the Christmas present to our little hero Sarah. But he doesn’t get it right straight away! With the help of his cheeky Elf, he finally settles on something ‘perfect’, just in time for Christmas Eve.

 

The final production is a brand-new film adaptation of A CHRISTMAS CAROL which will be screened on Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 December at 7pm. This beautiful adaptation is told through contemporary ballet, with a striking set and dazzling costumes. The story is voiced by a host of Hollywood stars including Carey Mulligan, Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis and Daniel Kaluuya.

Nathan Brine, Associate Director Of Creative and Production said,

“I am beyond thrilled that we are able to re-open the theatre this December. We are of course extremely sad to not be able to host our traditional festive pantomime this year, I do however truly believe there is something for everyone in this very special socially distanced line up. 

The work our team have put into ensuring The Grand will be fully Covid compliant is incredible and we cannot wait to safely welcome our audiences back into the building and bring life back into our beautiful auditorium.”
