First visit to the opera house to see Cats.The cast are all young very talented singers & dancers. Then Jane McDonald was there questions could she act out the Grizabella role. We were blown away by Jane singing, taster of Memory before the interval ok but the full song towards the end just amazing. She certainly is a great Grizabella,... More

We went to see “Cats” at Blackpool opera house last night. The show was very good with the main cast dancing, singing and acting their socks off (or should that be leg warmers off) for nearly two hours with a whole range of dance styles from Hip-Hop , jazz through to tap and Ballet. Although I enjoyed the show, my... More

We went to see Cats last Saturday evening at this wonderful theatre in Blackpool. The theatre, as usual, is a very welcoming place, and evokes memories of days gone past and big name artistes of yesteryear. We were seated in the circle and had an excellent view of all the stage and all that went on with Cats. This is... More

We saw CATS. I saw it on Broadway 25 years ago and the quality was just as good this time. The venue is excellent, the view from all locations perfect. Highly recommended

Visited Winter Gardens Blackpool in the Empress Ballroom for the PDC Darts final. Room was well organised with tables and chairs laid out and stickers labelling seat row/numbers. Bar offered reasonably priced drinks with a range of soft and alcoholic drinks served in plastic cups and jugs. Our seats were not close to the front but we still had a... More

First class night. Theatre, set and cast all really good. I was so looking forward to seeing Jane McDonald but what a disappointment. Her only number "Memories" was wonderful and quite moving - but her 'moving' around the stage was a little embarrassing to watch. The show has been brought up to date since I saw this in London many... More
