Unwrap an exciting mid-season selection of spectacular new shows at Blackpool Grand Theatre and gift the magic of theatre this Christmas!

This glorious new show line-up is like a splendid Quality Street selection, so why not dip into the tin and share the unforgettable experience of live performance this festive season?

Top of the tempting treats is Northern Broadsides’ revival of JM Barrie’s delectable farce Quality Street from Tuesday 27 June to Saturday 1 July. This hit regency comedy was such a sensation in its day that it gave its name to the UK’s most loved chocolates! This delicious comedy also stirs in a good helping of Yorkshire wit from the retired workers of the Halifax factory where Quality Street have been proudly made since 1936. Think Bridgerton meets Inside the Factory… It’s not to be missed!

But that’s not all! We have a whole host of irresistible ideas to amaze and delight the whole family tree! You are sure to find the perfect present to pop in their stocking this December!
