The Grand, York is shaping the future of events

The Grand, York is shaping the future of events in a variety of different ways. In 2020, we introduced hybrid events facilities which proved beneficial during the restrictions of pandemic. Our state-of-the-art equipment brings together physical and virtual audiences into one live collaborative experience. A single remote-controlled camera will capture your presenters and feed into the broadcast system so that remote delegates can experience the very same event as those in the room. Full technical support is provided by an experienced on-site technician who will remain on-site for the duration of your event, allowing us to connect with delegates around the globe, in a safe and cost-effective manner.

The Cookery School at The Grand offers the perfect opportunity for team building, group activities and enhanced corporate packages. You can choose from a wide range of cookery classes or create your own package with an adjoining meeting and conference space. We introduced virtual cookery classes in 2020 which proved to be equally as immersive as in-person events. With a film crew capturing all angles of our Chef’s expertise, the experience received positive feedback.

In addition to our immersive hybrid events, we have an abundance of experiential offerings at the hotel. Our incentives, such as our discount with popular tourist attraction Jorvik Viking Centre, are perfect for team-away days. Our staycation packages such as Dark Skies, combining the city of York and stargazing in the countryside, are one of the most unique aspects of our hotel.
