Fairy Tale Travel

1 month ago Tue 20th Dec 2022

Sleeping Beauty has been wowing audiences at the Blackpool Grand Theatre for a few weeks now and we don't want the magic to end...

We’ve partnered up with the Grand Theatre to bring the fairy tale to you whether you’re in the theatre or on our buses.  

In conjunction with this year's pantomime, we’ll be helping distribute over 100 copies of Grimm’s Fairy Tales books, which includes stories such as Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, Snow White and even Sleeping Beauty. The books will be available to pick up across all our buses this festive season, completely free!  

Together, we want to be able to encourage youngsters and their families to get reading and share the magic that these classic fairy tales contain Jane Cole, our Managing Director said,  

“As in previous years, it is an absolute delight to host these fantastic fairy tales on our buses for customers to read on their journeys or at home. Working with our partners at the Grand Theatre, we’re proud to help spread that extra bit of magic across the Fylde Coast this festive season. Be it a bus read or bedtime story, we hope everyone, young or old, enjoys the tales” 

Blackpool Transport and Blackpool Grand support Get Blackpool Reading in promoting reading for pleasure among children and families and helping them prioritise literacy in their lives and giving them the skills, they need to succeed, so if you happen across one of the free books while travelling why not give it a read, take it home, or leave the magic for the next traveller.  

You can still catch Sleeping Beauty at the Grand Theatre till 1st January, you can book tickets here.
