Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Hotel Grande' has been seen before, but is always popular. The comic waiter 'Sammy' is especially applauded. A note that Mr. Elbourne is to be praised for the 'Mail Fund' matinee. The public thronged to the theatre to the value of ?100. The entertainment lasted from 14:00 to 17:30. Twenty eight turns were to give their time (as did the staff of the house), but there was not time for all of them to appear. The greatest successes were the Bensons - a young lady and gentleman, and Fred Barnes. Ex-councillor Mr. W. J. Saunders was introduced by Mr. Elbourne, and spoke well.
