Open day at @grandoperahouse this Sunday!

20130927-165646.jpgThe Grand Opera House will open its doors for free on Sunday 29 September with its first ever Open Day.

Everyone should pop along from 10am to 3pm for backstage tours, tea with May McFettridge, a Peppa Pig workshop, wardrobe tours, face Painting, magicians, balloon modelling and a bouncy castle.

The history of the theatre will be brought to life and James Huish and a host of other groups will be performing.

There’ll be candy floss, popcorn and much more so come along and find out more about what goes on behind the scenes in Northern Ireland’s oldest theatre.

You will be fascinated when you see behind the scenes! We’ve been backstage a few times now but the most memorable was our behind the scenes tweet night during last years Panto. Remind yourself of that night here.

We highly recommend this great idea for their first ever open day…. And you could even meet the one and only May McFettridge!

Note: The image is my design of the Opera House, which you may well see popping up in the Opera House some time soon. Also available online at
