The Grand Theatre is an 1100-seat theatre 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.

The nearest car park to the Grand Theatre is West Street Car Park, above British Home Stores, right opposite the theatre: this is open until 12.30am and has been extensively refurbished for greater accessibility and safety. Most of the parking spaces are undercover and lift access is available from all levels with the added security of CCTV.
