One of the city’s former main Post Offices could be torn down as part of the Grand Theatre expansion into the vacated space.

The historic theatre in the city centre has finalised its plans, which will see it build an expansion next door.

If approved by the council, the former Post Office on Lichfield Street will be demolished and replaced by ‘The Green Room’, a new pop up venue that will include a stage, foyer and a cafe and bar.

The Post Office branch moved from its site next door to the theatre in November 2013, relocating only metres away opposite.

Since then the site has been left empty.

The plans form part of the theatre’s vision to make Lichfield Street the arts hub of Wolverhampton city centre.
