Stars from all over the country graced the red carpet last night for Wolverhampton Grand’s glittering anniversary celebrations.

The sparkling event, hosted by Midlands Today presenter Nick Owen, saw hundreds of guests treated to a formal dinner, auction, interviews with the stars, and more.

Marketing manager at The Grand Scott Bird said: “What a pleasure to start the celebrations for 125 years of the Grand in the presence of some of the theatre’s most well loved performers and guests whilst at the same time raising money for the Grand Theatre’s charity.

“We look forward to more events throughout 2019 as we lead up to the anniversary on 10 December.”

Stars who attended the bash included Gadget Show star MotoGP presenter Suzi Perry, who grew up in Wolverhampton, Porridge star Christopher Biggins, Emmerdale actor Sam Kane, TV presenter and former glamour model Linda Lusardi, and Hi di Hi stars Jeffrey Holland and Su Pollard.

All of them, bar Suzi Perry, have starred in the Grand’s famous pantomimes, held each year around Christmas.   The Grand also made a special announcement last night, that Jeffrey Holland and Su Pollard were due to star in this year’s panto Dick Whittington.
