KRPR Supports Royal Visit to Blackpool Grand Theatre

KRPR were delighted to lend a royal helping hand to client, Blackpool Grand Theatre, as they welcomed Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex GCVO to commemorate their 125th birthday.

Charged with working with the royal press office to co-ordinate and manage media attendance on the day, KRPR took the lead to oversee the plethora of radio, print and broadcast press.  The feather in the cap was a well-attended press call with coverage secured locally and nationally putting a spotlight on the iconic venue and featuring interviews with Chief Executive, Ruth Eastwood.

Her Royal Highness visited the Blackpool Grand Theatre, enjoying a short performance from two youth groups, Our Lady of the Assumption RC Primary School group who are part of the Grand Theatre’s Associate Schools Programme and the Scouts, Guides, Cubs and Brownies, who performed an excerpt from Blackpool Scout Gang Show, which will take place at the theatre later this month.
