Popular seaside show is heading to Arnold theatre this March

Some of Blackpool’s favourite performers are heading over to Arnold in March to present a traditional end-of-the-pier variety show at Bonington Theatre.

Stars of Blackpool is headlined by ventriloquist Steve Hewlett, who was resident at the famous Blackpool Pleasure Beach for the 2018 summer season. He shot to stardom on the final of Britain’s Got Talent in 2013 when he unveiled a hilarious dummy in the image of Simon Cowell, earning him millions of hits on YouTube. He will be joined by organ virtuoso Kevin Grunill, who plays at the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom.

The show is presented by musical entertainer Andy Eastwood, who includes a cameo appearance as George Formby, the star whose song Little Stick of Blackpool Rock helped put the Lancashire resort on the map in the heyday of the seaside holiday. Eastwood said: “Blackpool epitomises the spirit of good old-fashioned variety entertainment – it’s light-hearted, uplifting escapism, the perfect tonic for a gloomy winter’s day! When performing in Blackpool we always notice senior citizens on holiday from the East Midlands, so we thought, why not bring a show to them!”

Also appearing will be singer Helen Farrell, who often gives her cabaret show in two venues a night at the height of the holiday season, with a selection of favourite songs to suit all tastes.
