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

First class venue with great entertainment. Queen tribute HRH were superb. Evening marred by disinterested and sullen Bar Staff. One in particular was very arrogant and stood there counting 20 pence's out of the till and gave me 20+ 20 pence's in change and when i queried it hew said it was all he could do when i could see...

Enjoyed another excellent meal and entertainment at the Sands Venue. The band on this occasion were the GlamMantics, performing a wide range of songs from the 70s and 80s, excellent sound. This is a classy venue with pleasant staff, we have been on several occasion now and will definitely be going again. Recommended.

Had a great night watching the recent Bee Gees Tribute act. Fantastic venue and reasonably priced drinks. To make sure the night was even more memorable, the place was crying out for a Compere. Also come 2300, after the act had finished, that was it ! No disco and everyone started to disappear. Surely a bar till 2400 with a... More

Reasonably priced entertainment by professional tribute groups. The venue was spotlessly clean and waiter service was available. Drinks prices were fair. We watched an Abba Tribute band one night. They were great and had everybody singing along and dancing. We also saw 80s gold. A good night for people of a certain age with songs from all the top 80s... More

We visited Blackpool the weekend of the May Day bank holiday and went to the Sands Venue to see the 80's night. We had such fun and the band was great. I would highly recommend going to see it! The meal wasn't great but was ok for the price we paid! In future we will just go for the entertainment.... More
