The Grand Theatre was designed by Frank Matcham in 1894. This amazing space is a wonder of restoration and revival, presenting a full range of every performing artform, as Blackpool's community theatre, Lancashire's preferred opera house and Britain's National Theatre of Variety.

This George Michael tribute show was amazing. The lead singer and other band members worked in harmony in this multi_ talented show to present a knock out performance, which is worth seeing. Deffo watch them again.

Went to this location last evening for an 80's triple header, finishing with a brilliant Midge Ure and Electronica set. This is a wonderful old building, very ornate. I am sure it must have been very grand in its time, well worth a visit.

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
