Wow! Took the 3 grandkids to see this year’s circus this afternoon and I have to say it was A1. Thrilling, daring, beautiful, funny are just some of the words which come to mind. Featuring acrobats, knife throwers, quick-change artiste, dancers, Mooky & Mr Boo to name but a few and the thrilling “hamster wheel” act with a new twist I hadn’t seen before. Our group ranged in ages from 4 to 60+ and all 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed the show and were enthralled. For me, when you are on the edge of your seat during an act, that’s the sign of a great show and we certainly got that today. Here’s the reaction of 2 of our grandchildren to the knife throwing act, LOL:

Never been to Funny Girls or not been recently? Then why not give it a try?

Allan and I had the pleasure of attending the Funny Girls new season preview last night. It was a great night, as always, with superb lighting, sound system, fabulous costumes and inspired choreography. Of course, it’s not just about the glamorous ladies on stage, there is also the wonderful DJ Zoe getting the party going in her own inimitable style.

The show began with several numbers from Cabaret followed by sets based around Bond films, the Sally Army and Shirley Bassey, all ably led by Funny Girls’ star, Betty Legs Diamond. Amusing, a little bit naughty but always professional and well performed.

This is Funny Girls 25th Anniversary year. Let’s all go along and help them to celebrate!

The 2019 Blackpool Destination Guide showcasing the myriad of attractions in the UK’s most popular beach resort is now available.

The free 84-page guide puts special focus on the 125thanniversary celebrations of two of the resort’s most iconic heritage assets – The Blackpool Tower and The Grand Theatre.

To mark these historic milestones, the cover of the guide features an extraordinary photograph taken inside the world-famous Tower Ballroom when a giant replica moon was suspended above the celebrated ballroom floor.

The publication includes details of all of Blackpool’s major attractions and events, including Armed Forces Week (June 24-30); Blackpool Air Show (August 10 and 11); Ride The Lights (August 27); Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On (August 30); World Fireworks (September 6, 13, 20 and 27); and Nickelodeon SLIMEFEST (October 19, 20 and 21).

It also features information on a wide selection of hotels and accommodation, restaurants and night-time attractions, and an expansive programme of shows and live entertainment, as well as tips on how visitors can get the best of all that Blackpool has to offer.

There is also useful information on transport links, accessibility and the Blackpool Resort Pass which gives heavily discounted access to the resort’s major attractions.

New inclusions for 2019 are:

  • The opening of The Boulevard, a stylish new seafront hotel, bar and restaurant at Blackpool Pleasure Beach
  • A brand new Dr Who exhibition at Madame Tussauds with a remarkably lifelike figure of Jodie Whittaker as the programme’s first ever woman doctor
  • New shows and festivals including Jason Manford’s Comedy Festival; American Idiot; Little Miss Sunshine; Motown The Musical; Kinky Boots and Dr Dolittle The Musical.

The 2019 Blackpool Destination Guide reflects the huge range of visitor attractions which make Blackpool such a compelling destination for families.

“2018 saw huge investment at Blackpool Pleasure Beach with its breath-taking ICON rollercoaster and at Blackpool Zoo with its new state-of-the-art elephant facility. 2019 sees even more to come.

“The new guide will give visitors an opportunity to see for themselves how all of these changes have created a perfect blend of Blackpool’s marvelous heritage with a new generation of free and paid-for events and attractions to create the ultimate family resort.”
