January was far from a quiet one in Blackpool. With the resort hosting the 45th Royal Pigeon Racing Association Show of The Year - the 40th to be held in Blackpool - that event alone brought 25,000 visitors to the Winter Gardens.
Prior to the UK's largest gathering of pigeon fanciers, WG's Opera House welcomed Britain's Got Talent for their annual auditions tour for the first time in five years, meaning another entertainment juggernaut making a beeline for Blackpool when it comes to outside broadcasts that require added razzmatazz.
The evidence is certainly amounting that Blackpool is far from a sleepy fishing village even in the supposed quieter Winter months. And worry not...February carries on the lots-to-see-and-do baton as Blackpool awakens even more of its Big Names for your enjoyment.
