whats on at the winter gardens



Scrooge is coming to Blackpool and is the seventh Bill Kenwright production to head to the seaside resort this year!
Following a run at the London Palladium that catapulted him into the record books, legendary performer Tommy Steele returns as Ebenezer Scrooge in Leslie Bricusse’s spectacular musical extravaganza Scrooge the Musical. 

Based on Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol, Scrooge the Musical features stunning sets and costumes, specially created illusions by Paul Kieve, the special effects ‘magician’ behind the Harry Potter films and a fantastic musical score featuring the Oscar-nominated hit Thank You Very Much.

Don’t miss Ebenezer, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future and a whole host of Dickensian characters in the award winning, international smash hit family musical Scrooge!
