Lovely old building with architecture you would pay to go look at in another country. Possibly the smallest foyer in existence. lol Pleasant helpful friendly staff. Drinks a little overpriced though

Great to recreate the sounds of the 60s with the legendary Manfreds and Georgie Fame. Outstanding vocals from Paul Jones and Georgie Fame. Also first class musicians.

A venue full of character and run by real characters. A homely atmosphere from the box off, through the theatre bar and into the theatre. Stunning decor and atmosphere ... a must visit for any show.

Hi I think there’s a classical concert on the 19th and a country and western show on the 20th. The theatre has a good website with all the info if you google Blackpool Grand Theatre . Hope that helps

maybe try contacting ken dodds fan club or his Facebook page. I'm sure they could help or even Amazon. I'm not sure if the theatre would have these on stock
