We are always impressed with this lovely old theatre. We saw Jeckyll and Hyde this time and Ken Dodd last visit. Lovely staff and spotlessly clean.

Visited for a show. Lovely old theatre -restored well and beautiful inside. Staff were great. For an old theatre the seats were good with reasonable leg room (in the stalls) where we sat.

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
