COVID Compliance

From the 27th January 2022, the UK Government will remove any COVID-related requirements for large-scale events and gatherings, by law.

From then on, face masks will no longer be mandatory, though still recommended in inside spaces where you are in close proximity to other, and we will no longer be asking for  proof of vaccination of a negative test.

See below our quick guide to having the safest time possible with us! If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@claphamgrand.com

We look forward to seeing you soon!


1. Please don’t come to shows here if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, or believe you may have been exposed to infection 

2. Before coming to one of our events, we recommend that you do everything you can to make sure that you, personally, are not infectious 

You can do this by:

– Getting vaccinated / boosted

– Taking a lateral flow test

– Registering that you are immune (because of previous infection)

3. Unfortunately, due to the listed status of the building, we haven’t been able to fit in a full ventilation system, but we will, whenever possible, keep the doors of the venue open during the gaps between performances, which will enable to air to circulate and reduce both aerosol and droplet risk. During performances, we may have to close certain doors to comply with noise restrictions. 

4. We will be deep cleaning the building regularly, and we will be using contact cleaning solutions which reduce the risk of contact infections. There will be additional sanitising units around the building, and we ask you to please play your part in keeping the building clean from contact risk by regularly washing your hands and using the sanitisers provided. 

Cancellations Due To Covid-19

In the event of a show cancellation due to Covid restrictions we will reschedule the event and transfer your tickets over. If we can’t reschedule the show, or you can’t make the rescheduled date, we will give a full refund minus the booking fee.

All ticket updates are communicated to you through your ticket provider, by us.

Any further questions or queries, please contact your ticket provider.

Restoration Fee

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.

Dress Code

Our dress code is fashionably comfortable, so smart trainers are allowed as long as they’re not muddy from running round the football pitch all day!

Unfortunately we do not allow tracksuit bottoms, hoodies, flip flops or hats (apart from bowler, top hats or the odd fez).

Hen or Stag do attire is fine but keep it fun, keep it classy and not too tacky (leave the inflatable penis’ at home please!)

Tailored shorts are allowed like a jean or a nice chino, but we do not allow sports shorts.

Lost Property

Please call the venue on 020 7223 6523 from 10am – 6pm, Monday – Friday or e-mail info@claphamgrand.com with a description of your item, when you left it at the venue and/or your cloakroom ticket number.

We keep all lost property for 3 weeks, before donating it to Wandsworth Oasis, a local charity that raises money for HIV support and prevention projects in SW London through its 9 charity shops and community events.

Age Restrictions

Unless specified on an event listing, The Clapham Grand is an 18+ venue.

The cloakroom is £2 per item.

The Clapham Grand does not accept or take responsibility for items of value stored within your garments or bags deposited in the cloakroom, please keep valuable items on you.

Items cannot be returned without producing a valid ticket. If you think you are likely to lose your ticket, please take a picture of it. If you lose your ticket we might release your items at the end of the night, at the discretion of the management on the basis you know your items well enough to adequately describe them.

If for any reason you have a ticket but we are unable to return an item left in the cloakroom, compensation is limited to a maximum of £50.00.

Although we do our very best to return left items, our responsibility ceases at the end of the night, on the day of your visit. We keep all lost property for 3 weeks, before donating it to Wandsworth Oasis, a local charity that raises money for HIV support and prevention projects in SW London through its 9 charity shops and community events.

Opening Times

For live shows and evening events, please check the specific event listing for our opening hours.

Club nights (likely to return in 2022, sorry! #stillcomingoutthepandemic) run from 10:30pm – 3am, usually 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.
