Wonderful theatre, beautifully decorated ceiling inside. Regular visitor here to see many shows. Prices are very reasonable, comfy seats with good view of stage, a piece of Blackpool history & well worth a visit.

Great place to go is the Grand. Been a number of times over the years. Every time we go we promise to return sooner.
The staff are quite frankly amazing, helpful, funny and caring but best of all very Blackpool perfect. The whole place talks to you a history of theatre as you enjoy a great show.
This time we were seeing Brassed Off. Fantastic show funny moving and well acted. Can't wait till next time.

What an amazing place this is. You know how sometimes people who live locally, don't visit the wonderful places on their doorsteps?...well we are from Blackpool and we would be crazy to miss out on our beautiful Grand Theatre. The staff are warm and welcoming, the refreshments are reasonably priced, the décor, classically Victorian and excellently maintained and the whole experience is truly inspiring. The play was remarkable with only four actors playing a whole host of different characters and even a 3D experience in the second half, surely something that even the founders of the Grand, would be stretched to have envisaged. If you're on holiday or a local, make the Grand a priority - this worthy venue deserves to be supported fully. Long may it provide entertainment and pleasure to all who take the time to visit.
