The Clapham Grand is one of London’s oldest, biggest and most loved Independent Venue’s. Built in 1900 as a Victorian Variety Hall, 121 years later our iconic listed Theatre has transformed itself into a Modern Palace Of Varieties, whilst still remaining true to our creation, providing a weekly programme of events ranging from Drag Shows to Comedy and Live Music, Cabaret, Theatre, Bingo, Cinema, Club Nights and so much more besides.
We give a platform to upcoming promoters, producers and rising performers of the future, alongside showcasing some of the very best stars of today, succeeding in our mission to give the best entertainment on offer a stage to perform on, providing an amazing night out for our customers, and an incredible place to work for our staff.
Under the recent management of our programmer Ally Wolf, we’ve combined all our past programming alongside embracing a new immersive and content led approach to events developing our own inhouse team of producers and performers to creating our own productions and events, both on The Grand’s stage, and other venues and Festival’s, particularly Mighty Hoopla, which we host a stage at and co-created.
We have been the home for countless future world class stars and events, from being founded by the biggest variety hall star of his era Dan Leno, to having Charlie Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy and Morecambe and Wise all learning their trade on our stage. In the 90’s & 00’s Oasis, Nick Cave, The Verve, Jamiroquai & Suede all played seminal concerts here, whilst some of the best DJ’s of the time held residence and club nights with us. Moving into today’s era Snow Patrol, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man & Frank Turner have all recently performed, and comedy stars Russell Howard, Jimmy Carr & Daniel Sloss all host regular residencies.
