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.

With one more Bank Holiday in May, 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 musical extravaganzas like Grease The Musical; find all the food at the all-new Abingdon Street Market; experience the newly-reimagined Valhalla at Blackpool Pleasure Beach; go into the deep dark woods at Blackpool's latest attraction, The Gruffalo Clubhouse; 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 during May Bank Holiday weekend. Need some more inspiration? Head to our dedicated shows, events and attractions sections for an extensive list.
