Bank Holiday Weekend

Blackpool always sets its stall out to offer families an unrivalled selection of Bank Holiday fun with no shortage of things to see and do.

Plan a jam-packed long weekend filled with family-friendly events, amazing attractions and free activities for all the family to enjoy. Take your pick from large-scale musical extravaganzas as SIX The Musical returns to resort; find all the thrills at Blackpool Pleasure Beach during their Late Night Riding session;  ride along the Golden Mile on a heritage tram during their delightful Vintage Weekend; or book ahead at one of Blackpool's many attractions.

Our lovable spokesbird, Nigel C Gull, has pulled together a short selection of things to do this August Bank Holiday weekend. Need some more inspiration? Head to our dedicated shows, events and attractions sections for an extensive list.
