Russian State Ballet. Our favourite theatre and excitement as usual for the visit of the Ballet Company. I would love to say it was good, but sadly it was not. It felt as if it was a troupe in training. Tired backdrop, orchestra not together and overall little positive to say. Eco do half better but seldom have I seen... More

The grand was so brilliant. The prices were high but the whole experience was well worth it. The show was amazing and the staff were friendly . Felt like a once in a lifetime experience, but I intend to go back as soon as I can

For the past 8 years we have booked a short break in Blackpool between Christmas and New Year, our main reason being to attend the wonderful pantomime staged at the Grand Theatre each year. Over the years we have never been disappointed, and the recent production of Snow White was no exception. If anything, the performances get better and funnier... More

Another wonderful visit to The Grand Theatre Blackpool to see Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs. Went to the final show and a superb show in a packed theatre. Excellent cast, music, sound and lighting worth every penny. Can we just thank all your volunteers who are so nice to us when we come, it makes for a great experience... More

Went on Boxing Day to see Snow White. We have been going to the Christmas panto here for the last 12 years and it never disappoints! Steve Royle is just the funniest man on the planet. Sue Pollard and the Dame were brilliant!! As always, despite the appalling weather we left this beautiful theater aching from laughing and totally uplifted!... More
