Blackpool Grand Theatre is one of Britain’s premier heritage theatres. Listed Grade II*, this Matcham theatre is in the top 8 per cent of all listed buildings in England, and one of only thirty listed buildings in Blackpool. It is one of only nine large theatres listed Grade II* or above, north of London. The Grand Theatre sits alongside other significant cultural heritage assets which help to create the unique Blackpool experience. Frank Matcham’s four-tier intimate auditorium with 1,045 seats helps companies create a range of atmospheres for audiences. The Grand is owned by the Blackpool Grand Theatre Trust Limited. This organisation reopened the theatre in 1981 following the efforts of a number of committed volunteers who saved the theatre from demolition. Restoration work has continued without ever closing the theatre. Blackpool Grand Theatre Trust Limited has responsibility for improving, maintaining and conserving the building and the theatre’s substantial historic and archival collections; the theatre is operated by Blackpool Grand Theatre (Arts & Entertainments) Limited and both companies are registered charities. This amazing space is a wonder of restoration and revival, presenting a full range of every performing artform, as Blackpool’s community theatre and Lancashire’s preferred Opera House.
