The Blackpool International Soul Festival 2

Now confirmed to headline and perform exclusive sets of their most popular and in demand Northern and 60’s Soul repertoire are two of America’s all-time giants of R&B music: LITTLE ANTHONY will be performing a unique and very special show including Better Use Your Head, It’s Not The Same, Hurt So Bad, Gonna Fix You Good, Goin’ Out Of My Head, Never Again and more and THE IMPRESSIONS who’s exclusive show will include I Love You (Yeah), Can’t Satisfy, You’ve Been Cheatin’, I’m The One Who Loves you“, I Need You, You Ought To Be In Heaven, Stay Close To Me and more. For THE IMPRESSIONS this will be a momentous occasion–it will be their “farewell “ concert in the UK after almost 60 years, our last chance to salute their immense contribution to the music we love. 

plus our Special Guest GEORGE KERR will be in the theatre answering questions from 1pm on his career(LINDA JONES, ALICE CLARK, HIGH KEYES, NORMA JENKINS, O'JAYS etc)

" Due to now reaching the capacity limit for the Empress Ballroom and the live concerts from The Impressions and Little Anthony , the £50 all weekend tickets are now no longer available.
However , as demand to attend the Festival is still so high, the Winter Gardens have now made available a limited number of "Dance only, no concert" tickets at £40 (plus booking fee) 
These tickets will still allow you to enjoy the DJ sets in all the five music rooms and the Q+A session with George Kerr , but you will not be allowed admittance into the Empress Ballroom until immediately after the concerts end . We estimate that this will be around midnight on the Friday, and 11 pm on the Saturday.  Please note that anyone who bought the £35 "early bird" tickets has full admittance to all venues, at all times . To purchase one of the "Dance only, no concert" tickets, please go to www.blackpoolwintergardens.co.uk , call 0844 856 1111 or call in at the box office on Church Street , Blackpool during office hours "

A final reminder you can pay on the door for the weekend £40.  This entitles you to all arenas except the live concerts featuring The Impressions and Little Anthony.

sound system in main room not up to scratch, but great value for money all these rooms for 35, 40. or 50 quid not that much  for 3 days, nights in this day and age when you consider what people pay for 1 current artist for a few hours.
