SAVE THE GRAND. SAVE JOBS & HELP US STAY OPEN POST COVID-19
We've been honoured to have generations of you partying with us since 1900, and we desperately want this to continue, but we need your help to save us.
Whilst we are closed we are paying £50k a month in rent, and when open we are operating at 75% of your capacity in terms of attendance with physical distancing in place.
Having saved The Grand for the foreseeable future, we now need to focus all our energy, passion and skill into opening and staying open, finding a way of building an operational, programable business model working inline with operating at a greatly reduced capacity due to physical distancing to prevent this from ending up in huge debt from just opening the doors, but also future proof the venue for another 120 years.
This isn’t just about surviving our enforced Covid closure, or about reopening for one show, one week or even a month. This is about future proofing one of the world oldest entertainment venues, to make sure in it’s 120th year The Clapham Grand is is made secure for audiences to enjoy shows for centuries to come.
We have survived two world wars, riots, multiple recessions, a decade of closure in the 80’s and even the last global flu-pandemic in 1918 and we now ask for your help to survive this one.
For more information on our amazing 120 year history of entertaining you (joining the dots between Charlie Chaplin to The Vengaboys, Oasis to Bianca Del Rio & everything in-between!) Please go here https://claphamgrand.com/historyandmemories
