In December 2012, said about Wolverhampton Grand Theatre

I love the Grand Theatre. I have attended many shows there ranging from pantomime to musical theatre. Great venue, well co-ordinated seating directions and a helpful box office staff. I first attended when I was 7 years old and I have been going to see shows there ever since (now 30). Stacey - Masquerades Entertainment

Would just like to say a huge thank you for our tickets for the Snow white and the Seven dwarfs pantomime. We all thoroughly enjoyed the stage production. My niece and nephew had great fun getting involved, screaming and shouting at the top of their voices, on the other hand I thought I was going slightly deaf on the way home. It was a great evening all round.

The Wolverhampton Grand Theatre deserves "the best" rating as it provides a very smart and clean venue with all the facilities you could need on a theatre trip. The staff are excellent, first class customer service and the shows are first rate, just be to see Aladdin and "Biggins" at his best!! Would recommend the Wolverhampton Grand to all.

I went to the threatre to watch Alladin with the kids and it is truly one of the best productions I have seen with them. The 3D effect was amazing, the actors were funny, the ambience was great! "Wolverhampton Best of" gave us this opportunity and just want to say thank you to both companies! Grand Theatre is truly a recommended night out venue for the entire family both young and old! Will be looking for upcoming shows and checking the website for more best of... :-)

I went along with my family to see Thriller Live at the Grand Theatre last night and it was fantastic. The music, the singers, the costumes and the stage were all amazing. The theatre was packed with people of all ages, from 2 to 92. It was a really good night, highly recommend it.
