Let's Go See The Wizard at North Pier Blackpool

  Proving that pantomime can work just as well in summer as the more traditional Christmas scheduling of the family favourite, back for a fifth year in a row is The Wizard of Oz at Blackpool's North Pier.    It's fun for all the family in the 1500 seater North Pier Theatre every Wednesday until 23rd August, with double helpings as there will be performances at 2.30pm and 7pm.    Expect lots of slapstick and silliness from Reece Sibbald, who leads the cast as Scarecrow alongside Pippa Smith as Dorothy. Jordan Carling is the Cowardly Lion, Alex Smith the Tin Man and Duke DeMilo the main man, The…


Step Back In Time at Blackpool's Regent Cinema

  The words Established 1921, Reclaimed 2016 are what greet all visitors to The Regent Cinema, located on Church Street in the heart of Blackpool Town Centre. Following its heyday as a cinema, the venue carried on the entertainment baton as it spent some time as a bingo hall, later being the home of pay as you go snooker before closing in 2011.    Fast-forward to 2017 and within just a year of reopening The Regent Cinema has quickly become part of the things to see and do furniture once again. It's full marks for familiarity as the roster of classics is…


Hot Ice - 81 Years and Counting at Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    From the off, Hot Ice makes it clear to expect nothing less than elements on aggregate throughout: detailed costumes, masterful music, ingenious choreography and well-crafted lighting and effects, giving rise to a collective entertainment clout akin to musicians in an orchestra in perfect harmony.     There's interaction with the audience in all the right places, particularly from those that don the production's trademark feathers, which all adds up to fun for all the family whether attending the afternoon matinee or evening performance.    Light and shade, day into night, you never quite know where in the Arena the stars of the show will…


DON'T MISS An Intimate Evening With Christina Bianco

  Blackpool has pulled off the unthinkable: Streisand, Bassey, Cher, Adele, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Shakira, Christina Aguilera and many more superstars all on the same bill, in one venue, on the same night.   It's all been made possible thanks to the one-woman whirlwind that is actress, singer and impressionist Christina Bianco. The "woman of a thousand voices" returns to Viva Blackpool on Thursday 20th July to unleash her extensive repertoire of vocal impressions in the UK's Entertainment Capital once again.    We're delighted to be welcoming back the hugely talented Christina Bianco to Viva Blackpool.    Christina is…


Wine and Dine at LT GOLD's Vegan Friendly Faringo's

                                                      Picture the scene.... It was breakfast time at LT GOLD's Kings and a family of four had taken their seats for a hearty way to begin their day. Getting to know his Guests, host Paul White discovered that dad was a carnivore, mum was vegetarian, the eldest daughter was vegan and the youngest sibling didn't eat much at all.     Exploring the opportunity more closely, Kings - Master of the Families and Couples Niche…
