"This is the first time that Liverpool has seen a regular event like this, on this scale. "
Ryan Edwards - Operations Director
From 24th March, Sundays will mean cabaret at Liverpool's Grand Central Hall. Following a sell-out launch event on 10th March, Sunday at The Grand will provide opportunity for all the family to enjoy a roast dinner and live entertainment, in the iconic domed theatre on Renshaw Street all hosted by Radio City’s local breakfast show presenter Leanne Campbell.
Grand in nature as well as in name, this Grade II listed architectural gem of a building has been a go-to destination for eating, drinking and sleeping in the city centre since it's relaunch in 2018. A former Methodist church, former cinema and former home to the Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra, to name but a few of the building's past iterations, Grand Central now houses a 47 room hotel, a bustling food bazaar and, it's crowning glory, the 1,100 capacity Grand Central Hall.
It is against the impressive backdrop of the hall itself that the weekly cabaret will take place. Organised in association with live entertainment producers Curtis Productions, tickets are selling quickly for all currently available dates. Along with great entertainment, guests will enjoy a mouth-watering Sunday roast, prepared with locally sourced ingredients by Grand Central Hall's head chef.
Ryan Edwards, operations director of Grand Central Hall said,
“This is the first time that Liverpool has seen a regular event like this, on this scale. Grand Central Hall is one of the most impressive event spaces in the city and if our launch event is anything to go by, Sunday at the Grand promises to be a real spectacle every week.
“We'll be pairing great food with fantastic entertainment from our resident Grand Theatre Cast, who will be joined by special guest acts. There are still a few tickets left for Mother's Day on 31st March, so if you want to treat your mum to the most impressive dinner show in the city, I recommend heading to our Facebook page soon!”
Sunday's aren't the only opportunities to see live entertainment at Grand Central Hall. The hall has a packed event programme, with upcoming highlights including an evening with singer, songwriter and musician Paul Young and another with Scottish rock band Idlewild.
Liverpool Jazz Club take up residency in Grand Central Bazaar every Thursday from 8pm and Sunday from 5pm. With seven themed bars, including a rum bar, an Irish bar and a cocktail bar everyone's tipple is catered for in the bazaar, which also serves food from 12 independent food vendors every day from noon (8am on Sundays).
“Thursday and Sunday jazz nights at Grand Central Bazaar have been a roaring success so far. It's the perfect setting for a gig because one group of friends can choose from 12 restaurants and seven bars without leaving the room! It's free entry, then whether you want a pint and a burger, a cocktail and healthy vegan food or a selection of Asian fusion dishes washed down with a tequila from our dedicated tequila bar, the choice is yours.
“Plus, the bazaar has plenty of space so there is no need to book. Just turn up on Thursday and enjoy some great music from Liverpool Jazz Club.”
