Ian Wilson, chief executive of the Grand Opera House, said:
“In 1895 the most renowned theatre architect of the era, Frank Matcham, bestowed on Belfast one of his most imaginative and opulent creations, and the Grand Opera House has welcomed millions of people ever since.
“Last year the Theatre was awarded the title of ‘Northern Ireland’s Most Welcoming Theatre’ and this year, with your support, we would be delighted to not only retain that title but also be crowned the UK’s Most Welcoming Theatre 2018.
