The Grand Theatre, Leeds

9th July 2013


On a recent visit to the Grand Theatre in Leeds, I was interested to learn that the theatre was built in 1878.   The theatre is a glorious Victorian theatre and cost £62,000 to build, a huge sum in 1878.

The architect was George Corson.   Corson was assisted by James Robertson Watson.  Watson had undertaken a tour of European churches and theatres and he   had a significant influence upon the design of the theatre.

The bar has William Morris Honeysuckle wallpaper!
