Alan Carr and Craig Revel Horwood have launched Blackpool Grand Theatre’s new season programme – sort of.

Waxworks from Madam Tussauds of the comedian and Strictly Come Dancing judge were in place to showcase what’s on offer at the Grand in the coming months.

Real life Chatty Man Alan joins funny men Jason Manford, Frank Skinner and Tim Vine on the line-up, bringing his stand-up show Regional Trinket to the Blackpool venue on September 17 and 18.

While stage director and choreographer Craig will also appear in person and far more mobile than his waxwork alter-ego, when his debut solo show, The All Balls and Glitter Tour, rolls into town in May 2022.

Ruth Eastwood, Blackpool Grand Theatre CEO said: “From A-list comedians like Alan Carr, to West End legendary shows, we’ve got an amazing line-up to bring smiles to audience’s faces after these testing times.

“Our marketing activity has been a huge success and we are pleased to have had the chance to work with Madame Tussaud’s in launching our new season guide”.
