This year the incredibly popular Friends of The Grand Draw is being replaced by ‘The BIG 125 Draw’! This will be the biggest draw The Grand has ever held which include three great prizes, and we thought it’s got to be 1-2-5 hasn’t it! So we’re offering £1,000, £2,000 and a massive £5,000 in our 125th Year!

The draw will take place on 18 December 2019 at The Grand Christmas Concert.


125 years ago, local businessman Thomas Sergenson secured the world’s leading theatre architect, Frank Matcham, to design the magnificent jewel we know today.

Blackpool Grand Theatre has always been in the vanguard of development in theatre: it was the first theatre in Blackpool to be totally electric; it was the first to have a fully cantilevered circle eliminating the need for pillars to give every seat a clear view; and Matcham invented the crash doors that enabled a quick evacuation of the building.

As we celebrate this important milestone, our mission is to secure the theatre for the next generation, starting with a campaign to raise £125,000 to repair the storm damage to the dome at the front of the building.
