SAVE THE GRAND & SAVE PERFORMERS JOBS

At 7pm on Monday 29th June Sensation Entertainment & The Grand brought you 3 hours of non-stop circus performances from dancers to sword swallowers, aerial acts, contortionists and loads more besides - we literally have the whole circus coming! 

Performers who have been badly affected from the lockdown due to lack of income, we want to shout their names from the rooftop and give them the chance to earn, and do what they do best: PERFORM! All the while raising much-needed funds to keep one of our most used venues alive - who are being charged £50,000 a month rent by their landlord whilst they are closed, and will struggle to reopen without much needed financial help.

THE GRAND & SENSATION ENTERTAINMENT x 

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE GRAND- 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.

For more information on our amazing 120 year history of entertaining you (joining the dots between Charlie Chaplin to  The Vengaboys, Oasis to Bianca Del Rio & everything in-between!) Please go here https://claphamgrand.com/historyandmemories
