Absolutely mesmerising! As soon as the overture starts Cats just draws you in!! This is now the 4th time of seeing the production and I can honestly say the cast at Blackpool 2015 were without a doubt the best I have ever seen!! The dancing is amazing and ridiculously in time! Matt Krzan as Munkustrap is simply wonderful again drawing... More

Visited in April to watch Michael Ball and loved it. Had never been to Winter Gardens before but the venue was suitable and not too crowded.

Myself and my wife went to see this show on 16th August.The show was superb. We absolutely loved the dancing and all the artists. As for "The Star" Jayne McDonald -- she only performed four times throughout the show.Yes what she sang was very good but all the hard work was done by the other artists, In fact they were... More

A brilliant place to visit even if you are not going to the theatre. There are a number of bars and restaurants. We were seeing Cats and the theatre is excellent and in the stalls seats we had (row H) there was plenty of leg room. The place simply buzzes with atmosphere. Take a look and spend time just soaking... More

Watched CATS the musical here with my daughter which was a great show. The theatre was great inside but was disapointed with a member of staff at the theatre which was not helpful when at the interval my daughter was shy to go to the stage on her own to get an autograph and a picture with one of the...

I have always wanted to see Cats so when it came to Blackpool I booked tickets straight away. The show lived up to my very high expectations. From the talented singers, dancers, magicians and musicians to the amazing set it is a night I will always remember. I really hope there will be a DVD of the Blackpool performance. I... More

A nice classic building, staff are very friendly and welcoming, service at the bar was very quick considering how many people were in attendance. Great acoustics in the auditorium. If you are attending a show there at this time of year, I recommend you don't wear anything to heavy as older auditoriums aren't designed for modern stage lighting, it got... More

The opera house was clean and the show was very good. The was opera house was nearly full and the air conditioning was inadequate because everyone was far too hot. I even had to have a shower when I got back to my hotel. If the air conditioning worked properly it would have had 5 stars.
