Winter Gardens Blackpool

Dubbed “the most magnificent palace of amusement in the world”,

Winter Gardens Blackpool now welcomes more than 1.3 million visitors each year to its stunning collection of rooms including theatres, ballroom, exhibition halls and public spaces that accommodate a wide range of events.

The venue boasts a long and illustrious history and has provided the platform for speeches by virtually every prime minster since Sir Winston Churchill as well as staging two Royal Variety Performances attended by HRH Queen Elizabeth II.

The Winter Gardens has a dozen unique spaces showcasing the finest in Victorian architecture through to contemporary art-deco design including The Opera House, one of the largest theatres in the country and which has played host to global superstars such as Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and Bob Hope as well as more recently sell-out shows featuring Bob Dylan, Little Mix, One Direction and Peter Kay.

It is going through a phased refurbishment that highlights the sheer grandeur of this iconic entertainment venue, with work already completed on the Floral and Spanish Halls.

Whatever the nature or size, with almost five acres of connected space, Winter Gardens Blackpool provides the perfect venue for a wide variety of events from large-scale conferences, exhibitions, and awards nights right through to smaller more intimate dinners and receptions.

Clients can book single venues or combine multiple spaces to create a larger offering. All the connected spaces are unique in style, but each provides the perfect backdrop for any event whether that’s a gathering for 50 people or 7,000.
