Event types the Winter Gardens can accommodate

Wintergardens Arena

The Winter Gardens complex has venues with total capacities from 100 to 7,000. This means we are very flexible with the types of event we can accommodate.

We are capable of hosting all common business, consumer, and political based events.

Below is a sample selection of common event types.

Annual General Meetings

We can accommodate AGMs and shareholder meetings of all sizes. We have smaller, intimate venues suitable for hosting smaller companies and organisations. We can also accommodate larger businesses through the use of our bigger spaces.


We are very experienced at hosting conferences and are one of the top conference destinations in the UK. We can easily support high capacity conferences and have a number of venues that make excellent conference spaces. For large conferences, it is possible to utilise multiple venues in unison.

Political party conferences

The Winter Gardens has a long tradition of hosting political party conferences. We have welcomed Labour, the Conservatives, and the Liberal Democrats all on multiple occasions. Blackpool is one of the traditional homes of political party conferences and the creation of the Blackpool Conference and Exhibition Centre is set to add another option for party conferences.

Exhibitions and trade shows

We have hosted many exhibitions and trade shows over the years. Our spacious venues have room for stands, all related marketing materials and assets, as well as live demonstrations. In the past, we gave hosted notable exhibitions like Illuminasia, Bodies Revealed, and The Royal Association of Racing Pigeons.

Local business, networking and awards events

We have several intimate venues that are perfect for hosting business dinners, banquets and networking events. Our venues can be customised to suit the purposes of the event and many can be organised into a standing or seated arrangement.

Charity events and fundraisers

The Winter Gardens are able to assist with charity and not for profit events. Our venues can host charity performances, speakers, dinners, and just about any other charitable event.
