Mid-week Family Entertainment

Staying in a self catering apartment Monday to Thursday and wanted recommendations of where to go in the evening with our soon to be 4 year old.

Are the bars on the piers (Laughing Donkey, Family Bar) open til late (10pm) during the week?

Are there any hotel along the front that have entertainment for non residents?

We are staying south shore but anything within 5 mins of a tram stop would be fine too :)

Thanks :)

Also worth mentioning, the place doesn't necessarily need to have entertainment on, we just need to be aware of family friendly places to go after we've had our evening meal. Last time we came (2 years ago) we found that everywhere along the front seemed to close at 8pm...

Thanks Lorraine W, we've planned to go for tea at The Air Balloon (nr the airport) one night and they have a wacky warehouse for the little ones to enjoy.

Just 2 more evenings to fill...

Having visited Blackpool for the first time as a Family (2 girls 6 + 11) last July (2012), I found enough places to keep us going.

All depends what your looking for I suppose.

Most places will start to wind down around 11pm I noticed that but come the end of July they are open later.

As earlier posts say. The 3 piers all have entertainment on Laughing Donkey on South Pier

Central last year had Joni Pill from 7pm - 11pm but this year i noticed that they have someone else on Sat and Sun and are charging to get in, and it wasn't cheap if I remember correctly.

Needless to say I wont be going there this year. The Tower Ballroom has a family bar Tue and Wed in July but more often after 31st July, when us Scottish are home LOL.

The Manchester Bar has a family bar upstairs and we found this ideal with a soft play area for really young kids. Food was reasonable and prices too. We have booked the Sands Legends Show also again its more expense but hope its a good nights entertainment, by reviews it should be.

We have also booke the Hi Jinx Show too

Hope this helps

I added links but they made me romove them in case I was spamming
