“As a young actor attending College in Blackpool, I appeared in three productions at ‘The Blackpool Grand Theatre’, It was the first theatre stage I ever appeared on, and because of that wonderful old place I have been in love with theatre ever since. The Theatres Trust supports The Grand Theatre, along with many other performance venues, and helps them thrive. For this reason I am proud to be an ambassador of the trust.” ~John Simm
