Community Outreach

"Since my arrival home to London, I have been warmly and generously welcomed. I want to return that feeling and open our doors as wide as they can go to make all Londoners feel that the Grand Theatre is their central hub of creativity, culture, and imagination. It is my dream that we can be World Curious and London Proud together."
- Dennis Garnhum, Artistic Director

The Grand is committed to making your first experience with our theatre just that much easier through complimentary ticket programs that help bring us closer.

1000 Seats

A new pilot project launched as part of the Grand's London Proud initiative, 1000 Seats will offer ten seats for every performance in the Spriet Stage Series to first-time theatre goers.

All Londoners who have never been to the Grand – for any reason – are welcome to access this program. Working with a variety of local partners including local businesses, community agencies, not-for-profit groups, corporate partners, veterans groups, and our college and university partners, we are opening our doors to share the 17/18 season with over 1000 new faces.
