The newly opened Grand on Lord Street have announced their exciting plans for a spectacular Christmas lights switch on Sunday 6th November at 5:30pm. The owners of the stunning art deco building are planning turn the venue into a magical focal point on Lord Street installing over 15,000 twinkly lights, 6,000 baubles and garlands galore to make The Grand the shining star of Southport this festive season.

The venue which was recently been restored to Its decadent former glory has a wonderful evening of entertainment planned to get you into the festive spirit at this free to attend event. Claire Simmonsen, Local radio presenter and star of this year’s panto at The Atkinson, will host the switch on to the sounds of The Haydock Brass Band playing your favourite Christmas carols plus a local choir and more. Inside the festivities continue into the evening with live music, warming mulled wine and a mince pie or two as you enjoy the entertainment.

Andrew Mikhail says of the planned event “As soon as I saw The Grand lit up on our opening night in all its splendour, I could already envisage the venue featuring some special Christmas lights and decorations.”

He continues, “Working with Ivandale Ltd, owned by fellow Southport businessman and regular guest at The Grand, Tom Archer-Madden we have turned that dream into a reality. Tom and his team put forward their proposal and together with the team came up with the exciting scheme. The already spectacular listed building will be a real featureon Lord Street this Christmas. I want to give the people of Southport something to really look forward to and hope that The Grand will feature in their plans. We want families and friends alike to join us for what will be a wonderful occasion.”

Table bookings are now open for the early November date to enjoy drinks in Chloé’s Piano Bar or a delicious Sunday Roast in The Brasserie. Follow The Grand on social media for more details.
