The former Grand Theatre is an exuberant youthful work by Birmingham architect Oliver Essex, completed for impresario Andrew Melville 1885-6, and again after it was destroyed by fire in 1886. It was shorn of its pediments and canopy in the 1930s, and further simplified in the 1960s. (1)
Renaissance style theatre with an ordered façade, now painted white. The ground floor has been completely altered and a cast iron canopy removed in the 1960s. (2)
