Visit Blackpool

It's Showtime

There’s nothing quite like showtime in Blackpool.

Whether you’re looking for an intimate theatre production, a large-scale musical extravaganza, remarkable performance art, an end-of-the pier revue, some dazzling showgirls or a little risqué burlesque cabaret, there’s a seat waiting for you in Blackpool.

One-of-a-kind shows are very much part of the resort experience and something not to miss during your visit.
From cutting-edge performances to breath-taking historic venues, we have it all.

Here in Blackpool, we know how to make it a night to remember. You can’t go wrong with dinner and a show. Just pick one of our acclaimed productions, then match it with a nearby restaurant for a perfect night out.
Grand Theatre
Pre-show options are as diverse as the town itself. You’ll find something for everyone from a simple burger to award-winning fine dining.

Start the evening on the right note with a cocktail or two.  You’ll be spoilt for choice at the incredible range of bars all within walking district of our venues.

Come on … it’s time to bring a little drama into your life!
