Venue information

The Clapham Grand is more than a Victorian-era listed building in London: the Clapham Grand is an icon of the city’s cultural legacy. That legacy is now reclaimed and enriched with a comprehensive £500,000 restoration, refurbishment and return to form as a live music venue.

Originally opened as a music hall in 1900, the 1,250-person capacity Clapham Grand has previously served as a cinema, bingo hall and nightclub at stages of its history, but the greatest glories have arguably been through the artists and audiences it has hosted as a live music venue. Bands that have taken the stage at this celebrated theatre include such luminaries as The Kinks, Chuck Berry, The Temptations, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Echo and the Bunnymen, Madness, through to Public Enemy, Jamiroquai, Chipmunk, Paul Weller, Oasis, Muse, Hole, The Verve and Jamie Cullum.

Refurbishing the Clapham Grand has been a herculean undertaking, demanding of passion and vision. Revamping the sound system, lighting, staging and behind-the-scenes facilities was a labour of both preservation and reinvention. With work now completed, The Grand is again poised to retake its place as a jewel in the crown of music venues. With its three floors replete with cascading balconies, ornate plasterwork and royal boxes, the Clapham Grand echoes a bygone era while ushering in the next with it’s stunning high-tech refurb.

Selected reviews for this venue:

Nod From Accy, 17/11/14
The Wedding Present (17/11/14) - The Dogs
Great gig at a really good venue! Saw them last year at Shepherds Bush but this gig which much more intimate and the band more accessible. Kennedy was the highlight for me!
Tibbs, 10/11/14
Brilliant cosy and personal venue letting you up close. Excellent acoustics, rattles the whole place and leaves your ears ringing.
From The Jam (10/11/14) - Just like in the day!!!
Excellent rendition of the Setting Sons album from start to finish, no tweaking or messing around. Complimented with a multitude of hits and album tracks to get the crowd going in a superb venue. Looking forward to Sound Effects next year..............
JASy, 10/11/14
Great, atmospheric old venue. Wherever you are you get a brilliant view of the band and are not too far away. Sound was great.
From The Jam (10/11/14) - Brilliant Show again!
This band absolutely smash it every time. Although Bruce Foxton is the only original Jam member in the group the sound is authentically The Jam. They are superb and I would recommend them to anyone who loves live music. This is the second time I have seen them, they toured All Mod Cons last year and that was awesome. This time it was Setting Sons, the whole album played in order followed by a selection of Jam classics and next year will be Sound Affects, I will be there for sure.
