Show was excellent. Started at 7.30 and finished by 10.15. Very disappointing as went to Glammatics show previously and disco on after until neatly midnight. We will check next time as to what time it finishes as far too early. It was still light when we left!

Three couples booked based on Trip Adviser rating. All very pleased we did. Food far exceeded expectations and was followed by a great 80s tribute band who worked hard to entertain with great success. Very Authentic sound and authentic clothing worn by those with first hand experience of the era. Overall a great fun night out when visiting Blackpool.

We went to a cabaret dinner at Sands. The venue is amazing which is why I've given 5 stars. However, the food was shockingly bad but the entertainment was so good it diverted our attention away from the thick Bisto gravy poured over dry tasteless chicken

The food in the Sands is fabulous, coupled with that my wife and myself had a fantastic night at the Glam-Mantics 70's and 80's show, two one hour tight sets from some of the Northwests best musicians, the sound was so together at times it was like listening to recorded tracks.Awesome vocals and musicianship, if you want a really fabulous...

Good night at the 70s and 80s night with a group of stags and hens. Meal was fine albeit small portions! Entertainment was good and great song choices and range! All in all for the price a good night out!

We went to see the Freddie Mercury tribute show and whilst it was entertaining, it was a bit like watching Alan Carr singing Queen songs - certainly not a soundalike! That said the band were great and tried their best despite a pretty lacklustre audience so no fault there. As an ardent Queen fan, I enjoyed it after getting past... More
