Coronavirus – Latest information

This page will be updated regularly to provide the latest information. Any customers affected by event alterations will be contacted directly. 

Last updated. 09:00 07/08/2020

Following the latest announcement from the Prime Minster on Tuesday 23 June 2020, we can provide the following update.

Much of what was announced has a very limited impact on our core operations returning following lock down with restrictions still imposed on live performance and conference facilities. We remain hopeful that work being undertaken by government for venues such as ours will result in the ability to return to normal operations as soon as possible.

Despite this, work is being undertaken to develop a programme of content that would allow us to become operational in the near future including the greater use of the Opera House as a Cinema. Further, exploratory work is ongoing as to how we can utilise space within the venue under current guidance and envisaged future guidance for as long as restrictions remain in place.

Whilst much of our advertised Summer and Autumn programme has been affected, with more events still set to be postponed, we are working to develop as comprehensive programme as possible to ensure the venue is in the best position to strive following the crisis. A full list of currently affected events is available below this update.  

As our plans for a phased reopening begin to develop further, regular updates will be provided along with the steps being taken to ensure the safety of our team and guests. For the latest updates visit our website www.wintergardensblackpool.co.uk and follow @WGBpl on social channels to be the first to find out about our plans for a phased reopening.

Affected events 

The Winter Gardens Blackpool will attempt to rearrange any event affected by the ongoing situation. Unless otherwise stated tickets purchased will be eligible for the rearranged date with refunds issued if you're unable to make the new date. Customers affected by a postponement, rearrangement or cancellation will be contacted directly as soon as we are able.
