Blackpool's annual 10 day extravaganza known as Showzam was even more of a rousing success this year, we are pleased to report.
From Friday 15th-24th February, over 30,000 visitors attended the various shows, tours, exhibitions and workshops put on throughout the town, and that isn't counting the people who attended the many pieces of free street theatre put on for our delectation. The beautiful Carnival Ball with its 'Roaring 20's' theme was packed to the rafters with over 1,100 glamorous revellers dressed in all their glitzy finery. This year we were even lucky enough to have celebrity alumni Christopher Biggins as the official Showzam ambassador!
Showzam really is a credit to Blackpool and is ideal for all visitors but especially families with children. With a dramatic assortment of cabaret, variety, exhibitions, plays, musical and street theatre, and an often surreal blend of drama, high camp and showbiz razzle-dazzle, it cannot fail to entertain you.
There were over 50 ticketed shows to choose from, including historical backstage tours of the Pleasure Beach and Blackpool Tower, skills workshops of magic, dance, acting, face-painting and ice-skating, interactive theatre experiences, magic, cabaret and variety shows and much, much more.
So if you need to get away from it all next year from 14th-23rd February, choose Showzam in Blackpool for a truly unique experience. You won't regret it!
