Covid 19 has changed the face of Blackpool Illuminations in 2020. For the first time ever, there will be no live concert on the Tower Headland with a 20,000 audience; instead there will be a virtual concert and switch on televised on MTV.

 

From 20.30 to 21.30 there will be a televised show starring Becky Hill, Diversity, Fleur East, Joel Corry, Mel C, Rae Morris and Tom Grennan.

 

At 21.30 the action will switch to the Tower ballroom where Perri, Jordan and Ashley Banjo will host the live switch on which is being performed by NHS heroes representing the frontline and key workers who have helped to keep us all safe during the pandemic.

Latest Covid 19 information from Public Health England … please note that Blackpool is neither in lockdown nor even an area of concern despite the social media rumour mill working overtime. Feel free to enjoy your holiday here! Stay safe, everyone

The Illuminations will run from Sept 4th to 3rd Jan this year, the first time they have stayed on over Christmas and New Year. This year there will be a well-deserved tribute to some of our Covid19 heroes in the form of hearts, rainbows and the faces of 50 nominees. Other new features include a newly-refurbished pirate ship tableau, a replica spitfire illuminated with search lights and a video-mapped laser show in partnership with Hangar 42 and
a new “colour choreography” section featuring the latest LED and neon lighting technology along the Promenade. The legs of the Tower are also fully lit for the first time in 2 years!
Obviously, the traditional switch on concert has been cancelled this year but there will be a televised event starring the likes of Fleur East and Diversity; you can catch this on MTV at 8.30pm on 4th Sept

People living in areas where localised restrictions have been applied are allowed, and welcome to travel to Blackpool on holiday. However, during your stay at the Wescoe, you will be subject to a socially distanced/isolated breakfast where breakfast has been booked. What this means is that, as a precaution and for the safety of both other guests and staff, your breakfast will be served to your bedroom door at an agreed time. Breakfast will comprise a hot sandwich, a carton of fruit juice, a chocolate brioche and a granola bar. We hope this will reassure guests from both inside and outside those areas affected and will cut down on potential contact.

Hello to all our wonderful guests 💗💗💗

We have received so many messages and we have really enjoyed keeping in touch with so many of you and hearing how you are coping with the new normal.

We miss you all and cannot wait to see you again!

We still haven’t received an official re-opening date but are still working towards 4th July. As you know, the Government is likely to put a cap on how many guests we are allowed to take which is why we are offering risk-free bookings to you, our regular guests … this means no deposits and no cancellation fees should you wish to change your booking (or cancel completely); we want you to feel financially secure when booking, safe in the knowledge that we are not some big, impersonal company which wants to hang on to your money!

So what have we been doing to prepare for our re-opening and to ensure your safety?

We have completed a Covid19 risk assessment and made changes where necessary to the daily running of the business. As you know, we already have very high standards of cleanliness but virus-killing chemicals will be the new norm, along with more frequent sanitising of touch points in public areas such as handles and doorbells. All guests are urged to use the new hand sanitising stations at the front door and in the dining room as well as maintaining 2 m distancing throughout the building.

At the moment it is unclear whether we will be able to use our dining room or not so we have made plans to deliver breakfast to your room if necessary; this will provide you with the safest option as our dining room is very small.

Remember that Blackpool has miles of golden beaches, a wide open promenade, amazing attractions, a host of varied entertainment and, of course the Wescoe for your clean, safe accommodation needs; it most certainly provides the perfect Staycation location.

We really do hope we can see you all again really soon and thank you for your continuing support,

Take care

Stay safe

Staycation!

Angie & Allan 💗💗💗💗
