SAVE THE GRAND. SAVE JOBS & PREVENT US FROM CLOSURE
We've been honoured to have generations of you partying with us since 1900, and we desperately want this to continue, but we need your help to save us.
Our current fixed monthly costs, most significantly rent, are £50,000, and with no income since our closure in March, no government support or rent relief from our landlord we are heading closer and closer to bankruptcy and permanent closure.
If you've been inside our beautiful building, entertained & looked after by our wonderful team of staff, or just want to help support a 120 year old Independent Venue, we're asking you to pay us now for what we can offer you in the future. This will give us cash flow we need to survive whilst we remain closed, and make sure our wonderful staff, from the bar to the floor, the performers to our box office, the technicians to our security, all have jobs to come back to.
We are a truly magical place, we are a silly place, we are the place you go to laugh and dance your troubles away. You've made friends for life here, got engaged here, some of you have even got married here! We were built to entertain you, and our staff's passion is to do just that, and long may we be able to do so.
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR CONFETTI BASED HEARTS

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US - INDEPENDENTLY OWNED & ENTERTAINING YOU SINCE 1900!
We are the only existing original variety theatre in London who are still serving up an affordable modern variety of entertainment. From discos to boxing, from movie nights to drag shows, from stand-up to podcasts, from bingo to Bollywood. We are a home to major LGBTQ+ & POC programming and a lifeline space for artists and promoters striding forwards in their careers from pubs and cabaret clubs to arenas and stadiums.
We are run by a passionate work force of all ages, from an enthusiastic young team at the start of their careers gaining invaluable experience to people who have worked with us for over 20 years, with young families and mortgages to support.
Throughout those 120 years we have provided a safe space for all of you to come and be entertained, to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life, and immerse yourselves in our never-ending array of shows, parties and performances.
We have survived two world wars, riots, multiple recessions, a decade of closure in the 80’s and even the last global flu-pandemic in 1918 and we now ask for your help to survive this one.
