Theatre Heritage Tour

23 March at 11am 

There is no theatre quite like The Grand. The published descriptions in 1894 said so, and contemporary theatregoers agree. Renowned as architect Frank Matcham’s masterpiece it has a long and lively history.

Join us for one of our Heritage Theatre Tours on Monday 10 February. Stand on the raked stage and observe the cantilevered tiers of circles, boxes and pit - and the complete visibility of every seat in this atmospheric house.

 - See the secrets of the great stage
 - Take in Blackpool’s hidden gem
 - Learn about flamboyant architect Frank Matcham
 - Explore the warren of staircases that lead to the stars dressing rooms and beyond

 The Grand Theatre was opened on July 23, 1894, by Thomas Sergenson, Blackpool’s first successful theatrical manager.
