The Grand Theatre

Blackpool's iconic Grand Theatre first opened in July 1894 and is famed as 'Matcham's Masterpiece'. The theatre is one of a few survivors in the UK designed by the great theatre designer Frank Matcham and offers an eclectic mix of drama (particularly innovative comedy drama), variety, big name musicals and popular stand up comedy. Edinburgh Fringe award-winners can often be seen here in one of Britain's top theatre nights out and The Grand pays a key part in some of Blackpool's popular festivals like the annual February Showzam!
