“Friday night Folk Night”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Last weekend of the Blackpool Illuminations, and so we decided to take a couple of nights at the North West Coast Resort - looked at the entertainment options and decided for The Grand Theatre - Friday night with The Folk Singers 'Show of Hands'
Not knowing anything about the group we checked on the Internet and their reputation was amazing, so booked two senior citizen concession tickets at The Grand Theatre and such good value.
What a beautiful old theatre, lovingly restored and what a credit to the people who have devoted time and effort into it being able to offer the variety of productions shown in their what's on style leaflet.

“Don't book in the Gallery.”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Went to see Bill Bailey and, even though we booked well in advance, there were only seats in the Gallery left.
Thank god it was only a 2 hour show.
Seating is at a very steep angle and, with no backs to the seats, your head was almost resting on the knees of the person behind you.
Seat numbers are below the front of your seat and don't match up with the row behind so you have to crouch down to find yours.
