European Theatres Day – A Grand Visit


For the last three years, the largest single gathering of theatrephiles to celebrate European Theatres Day has been in the UK, at talks organised by our friends at the Frank Matcham Society.  They are hoping to take the honours again this year, albeit by virtual rather than personal assembly.

Monday 25th October is the date, the time 4.00pm (16.00 if you’re still on European time) and the venue Zoom, when FMS invite you to join them for a talk on the recently completed restoration of the Grand Opera House Belfast.

Before - 2020

2020 – Before:

After: 2021

2021 – After:

So join FMS members, other STR members and others all over Europe to celebrate European Theatres Day by hearing about this beautiful theatre which has just reopened after a £12.2 million refurbishment of the auditorium and extension of the Front of House spaces.

It’s FREE but you need to register in advance at TicketSource.
