The management at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre have announced that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Theatre will remain closed until Monday 31 August.

“We are living thorough unprecedented times but that said, I would like to take this opportunity to reassure everyone that great care and effort is being taken to safeguard the future of our Grand Theatre.

“Thanks to shrewd business planning and careful financial management, the theatre, which is also a registered charity, will make a grand comeback, just as soon as it is safe to do so. 

Decisions around the venues Autumn/Winter season, and its traditional family pantomime, are in major discussion and there will be an update as soon as possible. Bosses are also focussing attention on 2021, with a phenomenal programme of shows for the new season including visits from major UK tours including Hairspray, Mamma Mia, Everybody's Talking About Jamie and Waitress

These shows, and some others, are already on sale. A number of additions to the programme will be announced shortly. Mr Jackson continued:

“I would like to sincerely thank everyone for the donations, letters, cards, emails and comments of support we have received. In a time when we are isolated from the people we care about, these gestures are greatly appreciated. 

”The Grand has stood proudly in Wolverhampton for the past 125 years and we will ensure that the people of Wolverhampton and beyond will continue to enjoy this great theatre for many decades to come.”
