Eternal Love: Costume Talk at the Grand Theatre

Eternal Love Costume A4

Aunty Social and Blackpool Grand invite you to take an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how the Wardrobe Mistress and her assistant get over eighteen actors in and out of nearly 100 costumes during the production of Eternal Love. From starving monks to kings and courtiers, the costumes range from simple dresses, monks and nuns habits to sumptuous robes.  Some were made specifically for this production, others have a pedigree going back to the 1960s.  You’ll find out about how the costumes were made, the choice of fabrics and the research which went into their designs.

Date: Friday 14 March 5.30pm – 6.15pm

Location: Grand Theatre Studio

Following the talk you can take advantage of a 2 for 1 offer on tickets for the performance on the Friday evening starting at 7.30pm. You will receive the discount code once you book your workshop ticket.

Inspector Norse: Treading the boards with KWA

Inspector Norse leaflet

The all-new Swedish crime thriller Inspector Norse from the Lip Service Theatre Company is coming to Blackpool’s Grand Theatre on 15th October 2012.  It promises to be a night of nerve-jangling suspense, laughter…and a partially knitted set that hopefully you can contribute to!


Knittaz with Attitude (of town centre yarn bombing fame) will be hosting knitting workshops where you can make all the various parts.

We’ll provide:

  • Wool and needles/hooks/french knitting bobbins to those who need them
  • Guidance for beginners learning to knitting and crochet
  • Patterns
  • Light refreshments

It all takes place in the wonderful setting of the Grand Theatre Studio on the following dates:

  • Monday 17th September.  We’re starting at 6:30pm so that we can have a little tour of the theatre before we get on to our wool-fest at 7pm.
  • Wednesday 26th September, 7pm
  • Saturday 6th October, 2pm, this will include a Scandinavian tea party, so don’t forget to wear your woolly jumper and bobble hat!
