Overview

Do you have a passion for amazing architecture and fascinating theatrical history?

 

Have you always wanted a peek inside Blackpool’s hidden gem? Blackpool Grand Theatre will be throwing open its famous doors on Saturday 17 September as part of the national Heritage Open Day Blackpool project!

 

Pop in anytime from 9:30am to 1pm on the day to roam the famous theatre tiers and experience the captivating wonders of the glorious Grade II* listed building, which was meticulously crafted in 1894 by flamboyant architect Frank Matcham.

 

Heritage Guided Tour – For those looking for a more in-depth look at the dazzling delights of this much-loved local treasure, The Grand will be offering FREE 30-minute guided tours available at 9:45am, 10:45am and 11:45am (normally £7.50!).

 

This is a unique chance to delve into the rich history of one of the resort’s most iconic landmarks! Heritage Open Day was established in the UK in 1994 to raise appreciation for our country’s rich and diverse cultural assets and highlight their need for care and protection. It has since grown into the country’s largest community heritage festival. The simple, yet compelling principle is to throw open the doors to historic monuments and buildings – in particular, those normally closed to the public.

 

Heritage Open Days are now held annually each September with over 5,500 separate events listed in 2021, all reflecting the rich and diverse cultural heritage of England and its communities. The festival is a wonderful chance for communities to come together to learn, explore and have fun by sharing the heritage jewels on their doorstep.
