Grand Theater, Blackpool (must see)
The Friends of the Grand supports the Grand Theater and its programme of events. Formed in 1973 to save the building from demolition, the first Friends were literally ‘hands-on’. They painted the dressing rooms, repaired holes to the ceiling and helped to get the theater into shape. The role of the Friends of the Grand has changed over the years. They now raise funds from subscriptions and social events to finance projects within the theater. The Friends are also the founding angel of the National Theater of Variety.
