Blackpool Theatres & Shows

Blackpool is the home of entertainment and is proud of its outstanding theatres.

The resort boasts a huge variety of fantastic shows each and every year in architecturally magnificent buildings.

From opera, ballet and Shakespeare to variety, musicals and comedy giants, Blackpool really does cater for every age, pocket and personality.

And when you add the most beautiful buildings to that mix, you are sure to enjoy a fantastic night out in the resort’s theatres.

When you enter the Victorian auditorium of the Blackpool Grand Theatre you will understand what people mean by ‘the glorious Grand’.

This Frank Matcham designed masterpiece offers ornate, gilded plasterwork, baroque ceiling, cavorting cherubs and cantilevered balconies allowing every seat a clear view of the stage.

And if you’re catching a show at the Winter Gardens you will be spoilt for choice.
The Opera House has the largest stage in Europe and with a seating capacity of almost 3,000 this venue is big. Acts from across the globe have entertained here since 1939 and 2014 will see an exciting new performance here when the international tour of Mamma Mia! comes to Blackpool for a 10 week run.
