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.

New Foyer fundraising campaign    We're Off! Come & Join Us  

After unavoidable delays we are now ready to launch our fundraising campaign for the New Foyer. 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 Footlight's 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.
