Absolutely love the Grand, such an amazing building and where ever you sit, you have a good view of the stage. Went to see Puttin On The Ritz - wow what a show! The singing and dancing was mesmerising and everyone came out saying how much they had enjoyed it. Definitely a go see show!

I have been a regular visitor to the Grand for many years. A beautiful theatre with a long history of famous names and shows that have been performed there I was deeply saddened recently to go and be one of only approx. 80 people to watch a romantic/murder. An excellent performance carried out perfectly by the cast . The people... More

Always an intimate charming place with a lovely atmosphere. Have been going since the early seventies and seen all the famous stars - Whilst old fashioned it is much better than modern theatres.

Seen many shows here and no doubt will continue. Staff are very friendly and the building needs to be seen to appreciate how things were done in the 'old days'

My third visit to the grand theatre in Blackpool as I keep forgetting to write reviews!! Took my niece and nephew who are aged three and 4 to watch Cinderella. I was surprised that despite the very small box office and surrounding area in the top lobby we didn't feel cramped and squashed in. I think the winding stairs and... More

We had a fabulous visit to the Grand Theatre! The show was amazing and venue was stunning. Only problem was the seats which were very close together in the circle and balcony, meaning there was limited leg room. Obviously they cannot change this as it is a listed building, but I would suggest either sitting on the end if a... More

What a great night of theatre, music, dance, comedy, fun, interaction, history, legend and enjoyment. Loved the wonderful Grand. Marvellous theatres and company. Touch of Lee and Herring, Horrible Histories and their own style mashed together. Anyway, smiled throughout and we thoroughly recommend it to all. Especially loved the involvement of local dancers who were amazing. And the hula hoop... More

The only downside to the theatre was the seats were very uncomfortable but other than that we had a lovely evening the show was exceptional
