Wolverhampton Grand Theatre has announced plans for a major refurbishment due to take place in the summer of 2016 with a grand opening in the autumn.

Plans for the refurbishment of the stalls bar and foyer are now complete and the Theatre Board has decided to extend this exciting development across the entire front of house area with one spectacular project.

The work will take place during the theatre's summer period in 2016, for minimal disruption to touring shows.

The new project will be funded jointly by the Black Country and Wolverhampton LEP and the Grand Theatre along with fundraising.

"I am delighted we are able to extend our refurbishment project to include the whole front of house area. Enhancing the Theatre in this way will greatly improve the customer experience and will ensure the Grand not only continues as a celebrated Theatre venue but also becomes a popular daytime and early evening destination for socialising and intimate performance within the heart of the city centre". > >
