New Foyer fundraising campaign

Drive to raise an additional £1.2 million

After many unavoidable delays, we are now ready to re-vitalise our fundraising campaign for the New Foyer. The Theatre does not receive any external funding so we rely on the support of you, our supporters, to help us generate funds. The money we receive from ticket sales and Footlights shows goes directly to the upkeep and restoration of the theatre. We need support to help us raise the additional £1.2 million we need to build this new and exciting facility for everyone to enjoy for many years to come.

The Home of Entertainment since 1782 and Lancaster Footlights since 1951

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. Today, as a result of a continual restoration drive, the theatre is in the best condition it has been since the rebuild in 1908 and now operates as one of the key north west venues for amateur drama, music and dance and professional touring companies.
