Talented young dancers from across our district will entertain crowds over two days at the Grand Theatre.

The Happy Feet Theatre School will host two shows at the venue this weekend; on Saturday (October 25) at 7pm and Sunday (October 26) at 4pm.

The ‘That’s Entertainment show offers a mix of dance and music as pupils perform old favourites mixed with modern pieces.

Expect an all-singing and dancing production with dazzling costumes, beautiful musical performances and thrilling choreography. Tickets cost £9 for adults and £6.50 for children.

That’s Entertainment is part of a packed week of varied shows at the Grand.

The Mugenkyo Drummers will visit on Thursday (October 23) at 7.30pm. Their thundering rhythms on huge taiko drums, mysterious masked choreography with inventive lighting, muscular synchronisation timed to perfection, post-apocalyptic martial imagery and infectious belly laugh humour combines for a spellbinding display of sheer athleticism from the most successful touring taiko drum group. Tickets £18 adults, £15 children, £10 for under 18s and students. The show starts at 7.30pm. Comedian Mark Steel is Friday night’s entertainment, starting at 8pm.

The ‘Mark Steel’s in Town’ show, based on his Radio 4 series, will focus on Lancaster and its people, and the humour Mark finds in the place.

Mark hopes to get out of the Grand alive, as he will uncover what makes Lancaster ridiculous! Tickets cost £15.
