Grand Theatre - Haunted History

Grand Theatre, Derby

Derby, Derbyshire

Derby's Grand Theatre has had a mixed past, having been abandoned for various periods throughout the years. It's been known as the Locarno ballroom, which was hugely popular throughout the 1960s and into the 1970s, before becoming a nightclub under different names including Tiffany's, Confettis, Ritzy, Eclipse and finally McClusky's.

The club closed in 2006 and became a Chinese restaurant, May Sum. The theatre is said to be haunted by two resident spooks, both are believed to be the spirits of two people who died in a fire in 1886. In recent years the restaurant's owners have brought in a medium to try to free the ghosts from the building.
