Lancaster Grand Theatre Tours

You are invited to take a guided tour of the third oldest continually operating theatre in England.  Originally built in 1782 during the reign of George III and rebuilt in 1908 to its current Edwardian style, you will hear about its long and lively history and how it has developed into what you see today. A backstage and front of house tour is yours for the taking during which you will see the ornate auditorium and the wonders of the hidden, functional world behind the curtain.  Stand on the stage and see what it looks like to be a performer!  Hear about the people who ran the Grand over the years, what they did to it and who has appeared here.  If you are lucky, you may even see the ghost!
