The Clapham Grand has been providing entertainment for 120 years, and is one of the UK’s oldest remaining Variety Halls. After a successful Crowdfunder campaign to prevent permanent closure during Covid-19 we are beginning to open with a run of physically distanced events, which whilst operating at a loss gives as the chance to bring our staff back to work, rebuild out business model and most of all have you back to be entertained here again.
During this period of loss making trading during & immediately after Covid-19 we are implementing a £1 restoration fee on each ticket, which goes towards helping us maintain our beautiful venue.
We are always looking for excellent people to work with us, either on the bar and operational side or in marketing, promotions and production.
Please email email@example.com with a CV and brief covering letter explaining why you want to join our team. No experience necessary, all we ask is a passion for hospitality, nightlife, entertainment and being an all round good egg.

We are normally open everyday from 7pm till 3am
Club nights run from 10:30pm – 3am, every Friday & Saturday

Unfortunately when they built the venue in 1900, a car park wasn’t top of the priority list, and we advise everyone to use public transport where possible.
The area around The Grand is residential parking only. There is a secure car park underneath Clapham Junction station, where you can pay to park using the website JustPark.com which is the best value in the local area.
Entry to the venue will be denied for anyone found parking on Severus Road, Eckstein Road and Comyn Road out of respect for our neighbours.
We allow small consumer-type cameras into The Grand, but not professional SLR-type ones. Unfortunately we cannot issue photopasses or grant access to the photopit as this is done directly by the promoter for each event.
Depending on the show, they may be a full photography/filming ban inside the venue, during the performance.
For Friday club nights, £5 before 11pm or £10 on the door
For Saturday club nights it’s £10 on the door all night
