Directions to The Grand Opera House
The Building which is now known as The Grand Opera house began life in 1868 as York's Corn exchange. In 1902 it was converted into a theatre and Music hall. Over the years many famous people such as Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, Vera Lynn and Morecambe and Wise have performed here.
Between 1958 and 1985 the Theatre was converted into more of a social hall with a large flat floor which allowed for Roller Skating, Dancing , Bingo and Wrestling.
In 1987 the theatre was restored to its former Glory after an investment of £4,000.000.
Their extensive programme includes Local, National and International productions of Comedy, Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre.
