• Feasibility Study: Consultation

    Following a grant from the Theatres Trust, theatresearch theatre consultants have been appointed by The Grand Theatre Doncaster Stakeholder Group (which comprises Doncaster Council, Frenchgate Ltd. Partnership, Doncaster Grand Theatre Trust and the Theatres’ Trust) to look at the various options available in relation to the potential future use for the Grand Theatre.

    To get a better understanding of how the theatre could be used and what organisations would be interested in using it our consultants need your input.

    We would therefore like to ask you, our supporters, to complete the survey available on the consultation website.

    If you know any organisations, or individuals, who would be interesting in using or visiting the Grand in the future, please send them to the consultation website so that they too can complete the survey.

    The deadline for taking part in the consultation is 11th March 2022.

    If you require any further information on the consultation, please contact info@theatresearch.co.uk or telephone 07711 124 118.

    We look forward to sharing with you the results of the study, in the future.
