GRAND THEATRE TRUST
Blackpool’s Grand Theatre is owned by the Grand Theatre Trust. 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.
The Blackpool Grand Theatre Catering Company Limited is a subsidiary of the Arts & Entertainments Company and provides bar and catering facilities for the Grand Theatre; profits on its operations are donated to its parent company.
