Lancaster Grand Theatre does not receive any external funding so we rely on ourselves and the support of our customers to generate income. The money we receive from ticket sales and Footlights shows goes directly to the upkeep and restoration of the theatre. We now need your support to fundraise for the New Foyer, which will provide some new and exciting facilities for you to enjoy for many years to come.

These can be booked either on line or through the box office. The Grand Theatre, under its many names, has been a major part of the social and cultural life of Lancaster since it opened in 1782. 1897 Frank Matcham, one of the best known theatre architects, designed and supervised an extensive re-modelling of the stage and auditorium. 1908 A major fire gutted the interior of the Grand, virtually destroying Matcham's work.
