We called into the newly opened Theatre Bar & Gourmet Burger Restaurant before going to watch Brian Ferry at the Opera House. It is a very busy bar prior to a performance but we did manage to get a table. Unfortunately, we didn't eat there but the food did look very appetising. We had a bottle of red wine which... More

Nothing to dislike. A visit down nostalgia lane and a feature Blackpool should be proud of. We went to a concert at The Empress Ballroom and it was excellent

Love this venue! Good facilities, shame they took up the new floor as used by ballroom and latin comps tho, would've been amazing for the freestyle dancers to dance on rather than the old!

Absolutely love this building, I got the chance to see Micheal Ball and loved every minute of it. All the songs we knew, had a bit of a sing song.. but I just couldnt fault our night from start to finish. Blackpool should put more stars on, this concert was packed, with a 52 seater coach sat outside waiting for... More

I saw a performance of this show in Preston, some years ago. How it has grow up? IT IS FANTASTIC! The artists are all spectacular, whether singing, dancing or playing instruments. The scenery was mind-blowing and, to be honest, sometimes drew our eyes away from the stage. Well done Blackpool Winter Gardens for bringing these wonders to our town.
