Blackpool has some of the most impressive venues in the UK. From the majestic Grand Theatre built by Victorian architect Frank Matcham in 1894 to the magnificent Winter Gardens who has welcomed the biggest names in the entertainment business for over 140 years.
The arts and entertainment industry remains restricted in how it can re-open for live performances, both in theatres and concert halls. Keep checking back for the latest information and when you can expect to see the curtain rise in all your favourite venues in Blackpool.
The Grand Theatre is taking an extended interval due to the pandemic but will re-open for their highly-anticipated Christmas pantomime, featuring Britain's Got Talent finalist, Steve Royle. This socially-distanced show is guaranteed to be a sell-out for Christmas, so make sure you book your tickets soon.
There are other exciting shows lined up for 2021, including Jason Manford: Like Me, The Tiger Who Came For Tea and Dirty Dancing will take to the stage for two weeks in the summer.

The historic venue, closed for more than 150 days, has developed a brand-new Autumn programme following the postponement of the majority of the shows, concerts and conferences that were due to take place.
