The King & Queen’s tribute show is held at Central Pier Show Bar. Dates are scheduled from April 16th – December 31st, so plenty of opportunity to make a date! Each show features 4 music legends.


The amusement arcade at the front of the pier is packed with classic gaming machines from roller derby to hi-tech simulators. You will also come across Pirates Bay arcade mid-way down the deck offering a further chance to win tickets that can be exchanged for prizes in the gift shop.
