Blackpool Grand Theatre

Blackpool’s beautiful Grade II* listed Grand Theatre attracts the best in award-winning touring companies, including The National Theatre, English Touring Theatre, UK Productions, Opera and Ballet International and the Russian State Ballet. The theatre aims to appeal to all; with an eclectic offering of opera, ballet, quality drama, comedy and dance...there is no theatre quite like The Grand!

It really is no wonder that the Grand Theatre is referred to as the ‘Hidden Gem of Blackpool’, with its long and lively history. The Theatre’s rich history began in 1894, having been built by the leading Victorian theatre architect Frank Matcham, and being described by the first theatre manager, Thomas Sergenson, as ‘Matcham’s Masterpiece’.

The Grand Theatre has presented some of the UK’s biggest touring productions including English Touring Theatre’s Anne Boleyn and Eternal Love, the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) adaptation of A Mad World My Masters, the National Theatre’s renowned One Man Two Guvnors, UK Productions award-winning 42nd Street, the Nation’s favourite play Alan Bennett’s The History Boys, Agatha Christie Theatre Company’s And Then There Were None, the 25th anniversary tour of Return To The Forbidden Planet and not forgetting the Children’s Touring Partnership’s The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas. Dance is a key feature at The Grand too and companies who have performed here include Hofesh Shechter, DV8, Ultima Vez, BalletBoyz and Fabulous Beast.

The Grand Theatre also plays host to some incredible one-off events, these have included being a location for a National Lottery Christmas commercial, the BBC Radio 2 New Comedy Awards hosted by Patrick Kielty, and an episode of Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow.

Quality drama, comedy, and dance are always top of the ever-eclectic bill at The Grand.
