We’ve teamed up with Pantomime Veteran and BBC Radio Lancashire star Steve Royle and Special Guest Magician Russ Brown for the fantastic Steve Royle’s Comedy Chaos for Kids. As a 16-year performer in Pantos here at the Grand, Royle entertains over 50,000 people every year – as well as having been voted ‘Entertainer of the Year’ at the Red Rose Awards and having supported both Dave Spikey and Peter Kay on tour.
This is the first dedicated Summer Show not only for the little ones but also for the entire family. You can expect crazy gags, audience participation, loud music, and much more as per Brown’s style. He’s won the coveted Ken Dodd Comedy Award in 2009 with his work in theatre for kids.
