Blackpool Grand Theatre, like many arts organisations acrossthe world, has been busy moving hundreds of touring shows into a new Autumn/Winter 2020 season. Over the past few weeks while working from home, caring for our children, families, and staying indoors has become the normal, Blackpool Grand has been moving a whole season of shows and helping thousands of its customers amend their bookings.
Planning for the future, Ruth Eastwood CEO said ‘Firstly, I want to thank the thousands of customers for their patience and understanding at this challenging time. Our small team (just five of us) has been moving, refunding and crediting customers over the past few weeks, as quickly as humanly possible, no mean-feat I must tell you.‘At the same time, I’ve been moving many of the shows we had planned for Spring/Summer into Autumn/Winter. The programme is packed with a wide selection from music and drama, to comedy and dance. ‘I’m delighted to have only had to cancel a few shows. Most have moved to new dates, so you can still enjoy much of the great line up planned for earlier in the year. I’m very much looking forward to welcoming you all back from September.’
