Fancy a peek behind the theatre curtain at Blackpool’s beautiful Grand Theatre?

Three dates have been confirmed for theatre heritage tours next year which will give people a golden opportunity to see areas of the theatre not normally open to the public.

Stand on the Grand’s famous raked stage and observe the cantilevered tiers or circles, boxes and pit – and the complete visibility of every seat in this atmospheric house.
