The Grand Theatre is a beautiful Grade 2 listed Victorian auditorium, renowned for its intimacy and atmosphere. Points to consider when booking seats are:

  • The Dress and Grand Circles have a pronounced curve which means that lower and higher numbers have more of an angled view.
  • Due to the position of original pillars some seats have an imperfect view – pillars are seen as black dots on the plan.
Guide To The Seating Plan

The seating plan has the following colour code:

  • Unshaded areas are sold as clear, unrestricted views, based on a typical theatre production using the full stage. These seats will be seen as Gold, Blue or Pink banded seats when booking online, with the bands reflecting the relative quality of seat positions.
  • Yellow shaded areas give an indication of angled or imperfect views, based on a typical theatre production using the full stage. For concerts or performances by individuals, the view from most yellow seats will usually be far less restricted.
  • Dark Grey shaded seats are sold as “Listening Only” seats due to their position at the extreme sides of the theatre. They offer very limited views of the stage.
  • Some seats, including all Yellow and Grey banded seats, carry seat advisory information to assist you when booking. Seat advisory information is indicated by an “i” symbol on the seat on the online seating plan.

Please Note: On occasion due to the staging of a specific production, additional seats may also have an imperfect view. Please contact the Box Office for more information.


The auditorium holds two boxes, situated at the edges of the Dress Circle to the left and right of the stage. Each box seats four patrons, and the price listed in the relevant show’s ticket information is per seat. All four seats must be bought regardless of how many seats are actually used. Please note that for some productions there may be restrictions on whether boxes can be made available as elements of the production’s set may obstruct views of the stage.


Please be aware that the amount of legroom varies. Generally, seats in the Stalls and Dress Circle offer more legroom than those in the Grand Circle. If  you require further advice about legroom, please contact the Box Office at

Wheelchair Spaces

Wheelchairs can be accommodated in a number of seating areas, but spaces must be booked in advance. Please contact the Box Office at if you wish to book a wheelchair space – please note that these spaces cannot be booked online.
