The Winter Gardens is a unique venue, offering one of the largest theatre stages in the country. The Winter Gardens centre offers 12 very unique self-contained venues.


Opera House Theatre
The country’s largest theatre, with a seating capacity of almost 3,000, the Opera House is a famous venue which has seen performances from the world’s greatest entertainers and shows, ever since it opened in 1939.
Shows have included top West End productions such as ‘Joseph’, ‘Grease’ and ‘Cats’.

Empress Ballroom
With its spectacular barrel-vaulted ceiling, sparkling chandeliers, pristine parquet flooring and ornate balconies, the Empress Ballroom is a quite staggering venue.
Built in 1896, the Empress Ballroom has hosted everything from political party conferences to pop concerts.

The spacious Olympia features high ceilings, natural light and easy accessibility, with three points of exterior entry for vehicles and equipment.
This purpose-built centre is home for many of the UK’s major trade shows and exhibitions, its design enabling exhibitors to be conveniently housed together on the ground floor level.

Pavilion Theatre & Horseshoe
The beautiful Pavilion Theatre accommodates up to 600 seated guests providing one of Blackpool’s more intimate show experiences. With its versitility it can form a distinctly different venue for a conference or meeting.

Another versatile venue, The Arena can be utilised on its own, or in conjunction with the adjacent Empress Ballroom.
The room’s dramatic use of light creates an almost theatrical atmosphere for meetings, presentations and banquets.

Spanish Hall
The spectacular Spanish Hall, lavishly themed with its three-dimensional frieze representing an Andalucian village, provides a unique backdrop for any grand occasion, from a banquet to a wedding reception.
Retaining many original fittings from the 1930’s, this art deco venue has recently benefited from a £1million refurbishment. The Spanish Hall is self-contained with its own adjacent bar (Windsor Bar) and mirrored entrance.

Baronial Hall
This antiquated hall, designed in the guise of a medieval castle, offers a step back in time to the eve of the first millennium.
With heavy oak panelling, heraldic fittings and furnishings and authentic medieval detailing, the Baronial Hall offers a unique dining experience.
The room is also the perfect fairytale setting for a Wedding or Civil Partnership.

This exquisite, period-style hall was created with grandeur and glamour in mind in 1931 and built up an enviable reputation as a high-class restaurant and cocktail bar frequented nightly by theatre-goers.Benefiting from plenty of natural light, the stunning Renaissance Room is extremely versatile and particularly suited to special occasions for up to 150 guests. With grand arched doorways and enchanting cherubs adorning the walls, this opulent venue has the ability to infuse any meeting or private function with charm and elegance.
