The Grand is a beautifully restored theatre with good acoustics. Eric Burdon commented that these are becoming rare and that the community should support it.

With the refurbishments complete, the Grand is sparkling. We had a lovely evening, found the seats comfortable and good value.

Can see everywhere. Still has the small theatre atmosphere where you feel you can almost touch the performers .Comfy seats. The ushers are volunteers and are very friendly and helpful. Just a fun experience.

I visited the theater for Country Music Christmas in 2015 and The Nylons Farewell Tour in 2016. The theater is not huge, and that is one of the things I like about it. I think all seats are good, but for the Christmas show... More
