The Grand Pavilion is an Edwardian building, constructed in 1910 on the site of an old stable block which once belonged to the Fishpond Hotel across the road. This marvellous building was built by the community for the community, to provide a meeting place of shelter and entertainment for the many locals and tourists visiting Matlock Bath. During its building, there was a huge fire down the road at Matlock Town Hall. As a result, a new entertainment venue for tourists was needed, and so the council joined forces with the community of Matlock Bath in order to complete the building of this venue as quickly as possible. Throughout the 20th Century, The Grand Pavilion has played a host to a variety of entertainment such as theatre productions, dance choreography and cinema. In recent decades it was used as a nightclub and concert venue but due to lack of funds the building eventually began to fall into disrepair. The local community came together and formed a charity, which purchased the building off the council and once again transformed the building back into a entertainments venue. At night, The Grand Pavilion is used for Paranormal Events for Ghost Hunters alike.
The Grand Pavilion is reputedly haunted by an array of spirits. Ghostly footsteps of children are often heard running around the corridors and the main hall, laughing as they go. A grey lady in a dress is occasionally seen looking out of one of the top floor windows, as if looking for or waiting for someone. A death is known to have occured when a lady preparing for a theatrical performance fell down one of the stage exit stairs on the way to the Dressing/Green Rooms below. A young gentlemen in 1940s military clothing has been picked up on by many visitors, seemingly searching for someone. Furthermore, there is a negative energy on the Stage that likes to tug on people's clothing and loves to push people about.
