Visit Blackpool


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.

Grand Theatre

The Grand Theatre is currently taking an extended interval due to the pandemic but is hoping to re-open from 5 September subject to Government guidance on how theatres and other entertainment venues can operate. You can still book a show for later in the year or for 2021.  Find out what’s on at the Grand.

Viva Blackpool

Situated right next to The Blackpool Tower, Viva is home to a range of cabaret shows and live entertainment. However, restrictions are still in place for live performances which prevents the opening of Viva. For now, they are busy preparing and putting in place a range of COVID-safe measures, so they can welcome you back safely. Find out more.

Winter Gardens

The Winter Gardens is currently closed, but exploring options as to how it can reopen some of its magnificent venues over the coming weeks. In the meantime, book a show for 2021 and mark it in your calendars for something to look forward to! Next year, the Winter Gardens will see the return of MAMMA MIA! and Strictly Come Dancing Professionals will bring the world’s finest moves back to Blackpool.
