The Grand Theatre was designed by Frank Matcham in 1894. This amazing space is a wonder of restoration and revival, presenting a full range of every performing artform, as Blackpool's community theatre, Lancashire's preferred opera house and Britain's National Theatre of Variety.

Hi I think there’s a classical concert on the 19th and a country and western show on the 20th. The theatre has a good website with all the info if you google Blackpool Grand Theatre . Hope that helps

maybe try contacting ken dodds fan club or his Facebook page. I'm sure they could help or even Amazon. I'm not sure if the theatre would have these on stock
