Bought some tickets for the Northern Soul and Mowtown night at the Tower Ballroom, not knowing what to expect. What a night!!!!!!! Greeted by really friendly staff, very well organised. On entering the ballroom your breath is taken away by the ornate decor and lively atmosphere of a mixed range of people of all ages out to enjoy the music... More

Great venue but not enough bar staff, had to wait and queue for at least 20 minutes to get served each time

This is a must see venue in Blackpool, it has been restored to its former Victorian splendour and if you like to dance its great, and if you want to watch, its great. It also has a wonderful café selling good food at a reasonable price. The staff are very helpful.

Great gig for the icon of rock and great music. The sound quality was excellent I think it even surprised Mr Plant who rocked our socks of. It wasn't to packed or over crowded like some places you could move to the bar and back easily. The overall venue is excellent for gigs like this so why not more top... More

good if you want a noisy drink in a large venue, but a bit tacky for my liking. CVisited here on my first visit to Blackpool. Have to be honest I have not been back since

Anyone who loves to dance must pay at least one visit to the Tower Ballroom, such a lovely place. The sprung dance floor is superb, and the overall atmosphere takes some beating, one of the reasons Strictly Come Dancing returns year after year.
