Tower & Ballroom History

Spectacular Blackpool Tower Ballroom was designed by the great Frank Matcham and it first opened in 1899. Featuring the mighty Wurlitzer Organ, Tower Ballroom is one of the UK's few classic ballrooms to survive. Many such ballrooms were once situated along the Northwest coastline. New Brighton's tower ballroom for example was lost to a fire and the tower demolished. Blackpool Tower Circus dates from 1900 and was also designed by Matcham. The ballroom and Blackpool Tower Circus are now Grade listed.

Events & Tours

Blackpool Tower Ballroom hosts year round events, dancing competitions, shows, Northern Soul nights and Big Family Days out. Special Dungeon late tours and interactive shows, heritage tours and party nights are all available. A great cafe bar sits on level 5 of the Tower and includes a Sea View Terrace overlooking the Comedy Carpet!
