Not been to the grand for years and had forgotten what a lovely venue it is. The show last night was brilliant (cheesy but good fun) everyone up dancing and singing, the bar staff before and during intermission were efficient and on the whole had a fab night out

What could be better than an evening at the ballet in the beautiful Grand Theatre, Blackpool. Coppelia, performed by a fantastic group of young Russian dancers. They were awesome! The orchestra were sublime. Great night out.

Slow to start, girl who played sleeping beauty had a high pitched voice which was annoying. The bad fairy was the best. People were falling asleep in the first half which said it all and the story was confusing for children, the prince does not come into the story at the beginning as was portrayed...it was rubbish!!! I went here... More

We have visited the grand theatre pantomime for the last few years and have always enjoyed the show, This years show is just as fantastic!... Steve Royle had us in stitches with his quick wit and humour, what a talent! This beautiful little theatre is definitely worth a visit...

We saw the panto on the second night after opening so they were still experiencing some technical glitches - which was understandable. Steve Royale is as funny as ever making the most of the situations he is presented with. If you want a pre-show or interval drink and a quicker entrance then use the side entrance directly into the bar!

Last Wednesday (10 Dec.) we had the pleasure of attending The Grand, Blackpool to watch a first class pantomime. The theatre is a magnificent building and a pleasure to visit.
