Overview

The Grand Pavilion Matlock Bath is 'open ambitious and a little bit scruffy'. You are welcome to come and visit our building on open days and heritage talks and for all our publicised events.In August 2013 the building was bought from the council by the community and is run by a local charity. The aim is to restore this amazing building and theatre. While we wait for the lottery fairy to do her thing,we are running events such as live music performances, art and heritage exhibitions, film shows and private hirings.The Pavilion is also the home of The Peak District Lead Mining Museum which is very successful,very popular and not at all scruffy !

Matlock Bath is a lovely pretty town in Derbyshire, with very scenic views of rocky hills all around. Almost everywhere you can see lots of greenery and very high rocky hillsides. There are some very steep streets, which are a great challenge to walk up,...More

If you can manage to get there earlier than the crowds it's a lovely place to visit & good surrounding places & walks

Matlock and Matlock Bath were a huge disappointment. I would liken them to Blackpool with mini fairground attractions, arcades and fish and chip shops, just not our thing. Although it is obviously popular judging by the crowds it was plain that this area attracts a...More

Went to Matlock Bath on Sunday - never again . There were Parking Wardens all over the place enforcing strict one hour parking. Felt very sorry for families that had come for a day out and were loading crying kids back into cars. We wondered...More

Perhaps I missed something but the building looks in need of restoration but understood this has been done. Visited the museum next door which was fully decorated. Almost thought I was in the wrong place!

The Restoration Cafe opened this week downstairs in the Pavilion next to the mining museum (well worth a visit there!). I am not sure about the choice of decor, I think the idea was to make people aware that profits from it will go towards...More

We have not had Rick Astley at this venue - maybe we should! - so perhaps this review is meant for another venue?

Best way to describe this place is shabby sheik - seems to have undergone some restoration but defiantly in need of more. Decent cup of coffee though
