Blackpool Grand Theatre

The Grand Theatre is one of the North West’s great cultural landmarks. A 1,100-seat Grade II Listed Victorian theatre designed by Frank Matcham in 1894 and rejuvenated in the late twentieth century, The Grand is Blackpool's community theatre, Lancashire's preferred opera house and Britain's National Theatre of Variety. It offers a broad programme of popular and progressive theatre, opera, ballet, dance, pantomime and music for Blackpool and the North West.

The managing board of the Grand Theatre continue to operate the theatre according to manageable long-term aims: identifying new partnerships with professional theatre-makers, producers and promoters who share the Grand’s theatrical vision; hosting amateur and community theatre productions; finding and developing theatregoers for different art forms from all sectors of the population; and to involve members of our communities of all ages as audiences and participants across the Fylde coast.
