YouTube Channel Launched

The Grotto has appeared on many TV shows over the years and we’ve been working recently, with our archivist, to get all the dusty old VHS tapes converted to DVDs. Now we’ve started adding clips, old and new, to our YouTube Channel here.

There’s still more to add, but there’s some nifty clips to enjoy for starters.

If you happen to have recorded the Grotto on the TV, do get in touch. It may well be a piece of footage that we don’t have! We’ll happily convert it to DVD if needed and send you a copy.
