WE ARE A CHARITY – Blackpool’s Grand Theatre receives corporate and funding support from selected organisations locally and regionally. If you would like to support the theatre you can in many ways: support our programming, creative learning, day-to-day running costs, customer comforts or capital projects.
Blackpool Grand Theatre (Arts & Entertainments) Limited
The purpose of the Charity is “to promote, maintain, improve, assist and advance public education, appreciation and understanding of the arts including the arts of design, drama, mime, dance, singing and music and, to formulate, prepare and establish schemes therefor”.
The charity aims to:
- Welcome new and existing audiences by presenting a programme that will inspire, challenge and entertain through its cultural and artistic diversity.
- Contribute to Blackpool’s vibrant cultural heritage through programming and by being a centre of excellence for the enjoyment of the performing arts.
- Enhance and conserve the integrity of the Grade II* listed Victorian theatre
- Ensure the long-term financial sustainability of the theatre
- Support the continued development of creativity and learning in the local and wider community
A number of strategies are employed to achieve these, from targeted discounting, audio-described performances for the blind, plus BSL signed and captioned performances, to guided tours and partnership working with many and varied stakeholders.
