Theatre Heritage Tour – April 2017

7 April 2017

Join us on our Theatre Heritage Tours led by theatre archivists Geoff and Linda Tolson MBE.

Renowned as architect Frank Matcham’s masterpiece The Grand has a long and lively history.

Our Theatre Heritage Tours will give you the opportunity to stand on the raked stage and observe the cantilevered tiers of circles, boxes and pit.

There is no theatre quite like The Grand. The published descriptions in 1894 said so, and contemporary theatregoers agree. See the secrets of the great stage, take in Blackpool’s hidden gem and learn more about the flamboyant architect Frank Matcham. Explore with us the warren of staircases that lead to the stars dressing rooms and beyond…

The Grand opened on July 23, 1894- step back with us, discover more and see behind the scenes.
