We are re-opening our Upper Circle for Russell Howard on Sunday & your invited for free as a thank you ❤️

Hey Everyone!

Firstly thank all for your support since we closed in March. The love & donations you've given us has not only been amazing but without it we wouldn't have made it this far. We have also received further great news that we have been incredibly lucky to be given an emergency grant by The Arts Council, which has given us some breathing space until the start of October  meaning we've been able to we reopen and continue to look and apply for further funding and support.

In the meantime we have been incredibly busy confirming some AMAZING shows to reopen with, and we will be emailing you all tomorrow with these, but before we do we want to tell you something INCREDIBLE....

WE HAVE REOPENED OUR UPPER CIRCLE - AND WE WANT YOU THERE ON SUNDAY FOR THE FIRST SHOW - FOR FREE.

Yes, after 15 years since it was last opened, for Oasis in 2005, we have refurbished our upper circle (or The Gods in theatre speak!)  - and we have the amazing Russell Howard here on Sunday and we have 100 free tickets (the capacity of the upper circle with distancing) and we would LOVE it if you could join us.

All you need to do is go here https://link.dice.fm/PsoXHvX7j9?tty=104909 to claim them - there is a £1 a ticket restoration levy per ticket (we can buy some more paint!) - but otherwise they are free and just a small way we can thank you for all your donations and support.

Please could you keep this link to yourselves, as there are only 100 tickets, and we want this to just be for you guys. 

Please read in below for more about out opening plans, your rewards and our Covid Safety.

Thank you all again from the bottom of our hearts

REOPENING PLANS

We realise that with physical distancing in place we will be trading at 75% under our usual capacity, which means we risk making a loss to open, but whilst we are still paying rent it's a much more positive thing for us to do than remain closed. We want to be able to try and get our business back up and running so we can bring our staff back to work before the furlough scheme ends. We also want to being our amazing team of freelance staff & performers back to do what they love, which is creating shows, for you our incredible audience to comeback to - safely. 

YOUR REWARDS

If you ordered a reward that needs posting, bear with us as we work our way through this! We are bringing more staff back now so will have more help and time to do it!

If your reward was tickets / drinks / entry we are afraid we won't be able to redeem these till early next year. The reason why is with distancing in place, and the regulations on group sizes etc it is logistically and financially impossible for us to manage it right now. 

Don't worry though, we aren't going anywhere (other than more OPEN!) and we 110% will honour all these, and when we know more on how we can we will let you know ASAP so you can plan ahead.  

COVID SAFETY

It's amazing for us to be able to get back open again to host events, but nothing is more important that your safety! We just wanted to let you know what measures we have in place to make sure you have a safe & brilliant time with us!  ????

All our tickets are for groups/bubbles under 6 people  ????

Physical distancing throughout the venue ⬅️  ➡️

Face masks until seated (we have spares if caught short!) ????

Table service for drinks ????

ALL the anti-bac ????

Track & trace baby ✍️

Temp checks on entry! ????

Government approved pilot live show ✅

Any questions at all hit us up - info@claphamgrand.com - we're here to give you the safest & best night out! ????
