The Grand Opera House Belfast has delivered laughter, tears and applause since 1895 and is an important part of Belfast Tourism. Since opening its doors to the public for the first time more than a century ago, the Grand Opera House Belfast has played host to some of the biggest names from the world of entertainment.
In 1991 and again in 1993, the Grand Opera House Belfast suffered extensive damage following two car bombs . Major refurbishment work followed both bombs, including the addition of blast walls to protect the auditorium in the future. In a very public display of resilience, the Grand Opera House hosted the BAFTA awards on Sunday 14 September 1994.
The extension to the Grand Opera House Belfast opened in October 2006 with a gala performance. Built on the site where the Hippodrome Theatre once stood, the extension provided much needed hospitality facilities and lift access between the floors.
