Blackpool Armed Forces Week

Blackpool Armed Forces & Veteran's Week celebrates Britain’s armed forces, past, present and future.

Armed Forces Week is Blackpool’s opportunity to say thank you to our heroes. From June 25-1 July, the whole town will come together to welcome serving military personnel, veterans and cadets, with a wide range of activities targeted at them and their families as well as the many thousands of people visiting the resort.

From afternoon tea dances to meeting pilots, burlesque and cabaret acts, family fun, grand dinners, concerts, parade and heritage tours, there's something for everyone!

Free event for Help for Heroes... Put on your Gladrags and Dance for Victory at The Blackpool Tower!

Get ready to jitterbug, jive, swing and lindy hop the night away on 23 June, when The Blackpool Tower Ballroom becomes centre stage with an evening of contemporary entertainment with a war-time theme. Fans of Showzam's Carnival Ball will love this!

Fabulous ‘forces sweetheart’ Madame Galina will compère the event which features Alex Mendham and his Orchestra, and the evening will also include classic burlesque act, Miss Betsy Rose, comedy cabaret favourites Jones and Barnard, a circus troupe, and Strictly Come Dancing choreographer, James Wilson and his partner Elinor Summers will step back in time to the 1940s to perform the jitterbug and a jive danced in military uniform.

Tickets for this 18+ event are FREE, simply email your name and address plus the number of tickets you require (max. 6) to enterblackpool@merlinentertainments.biz.
