Since opening its doors on 23 December 1895, the Grand Opera House has delivered an unrivalled programme of entertainment, playing host to some of the greatest names in theatre and music.
Designed by the prolific theatrical architect Frank Matcham, the theatre was a huge success from the outset, hosting a vibrant programme of opera, drama, pantomime, or the latest London comedy or musical. Northern Ireland’s premier theatre boasts a wide array of popular shows and additional facilities and services such as venue hire for corporate hospitality, functions & events, and even weddings!
Extended in 2006, the original façade has been joined by a striking addition to Belfast’s skyline, home to a smaller performance space - the Baby Grand Studio. Bars are located on each floor and all stock a range of drinks including beer, wine and spirits, as well as tea and coffee. The Box Office is situated in the foyer at the Grand Opera House; Box Office opening hours are Monday to Friday 09:30 to 17:30, and Saturday 09:30 to 17:00. The Box Office is closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays. Online booking is available at all times at www.goh.co.uk
