The Grand Opera House is currently closed for restoration, and will reopen with Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the end of 2020. To mark the Theatre’s 125th anniversary we’re creating an unmissable performance programme for 2021, including blockbuster West End musicals never before seen in Belfast, and some of the most popular productions from the past decade. We’ll be adding new shows throughout 2020, so keep checking back in to make sure you get the best seats first!
