When something has been going for 15 years you know it must be good.

Which is exactly the case with All Hands On Deck, which takes place at The Grand Theatre on Sunday and is set to be the biggest and best yet.

The fund-raiser began in 1999 and has become the biggest charity show in town.

This is mainly due to the all-star cast, which features the ever-popular Joe Longthorne as 
Captain, First Officer 
Toni-Jo and Johnnie 
Casson as the ship’s cat.

The show will also star Catchphrase legend Roy Walker and international Irish singing star Rose-Marie, as well as comedy sensation Billy Hunter and singer-songwriter Vaughan Kennedy.

There are also plenty of well-known faces from the Blackpool scene, including Joey Blower. Leye D Johns and Carole Kaye.

“It is just a cracking night,” said Toni-Jo, the show’s producer. “We have 20 acts on, all great names, and we fit it all into three hours.

“All the singers do two songs, the comedians do six minutes each and it is one of the best nights of the year.

“It is always well supported by local people and we’ve already sold lots of tickets, so fingers crossed we’ll have a good night.”

Tickets priced £16.50 to £26.50 are available from or the box office on (01253) 290190.

Proceeds go to Trinity Hospice, Claremont Community Centre and the 
Benevolent Fund. The show starts at 7.30pm
