In response to the Prime Minister’s statement yesterday evening, we regret to inform you Blackpool Grand, along with other UK Theatres will close today (Tuesday, 17 March 2020).

We understand this will be a huge disappointment to many. At the moment, shows are cancelled until 6 April.  However, this will remain under review in line with government advice. This will include all our work in the community and with partner organisations.

Please check our website over the next few days for further information regarding future performances.

In these unprecedented times, we will begin to issue credit notes or refunds for all cancelled shows. Please do not contact the Box Office, they will contact you.  We are receiving a large volume of calls, emails and social messages and we will deal with your query as soon as possible.

Blackpool Grand supports the decision, but this uncertainty and lack of clarity by the government will be incredibly costly for the theatre, the industry, and its supported artists with no government assistance.

With a very small dedicated team and thousands of people to contact we appreciate your patience. Many thanks for your understanding.

Ruth Eastwood – Chief Executive

Anthony Stone – Chair Blackpool Grand (Arts and Entertainment) Ltd
