Blackpool Play Expo 2019

Please be aware time is running out to join this trip. To guarantee places for this brilliant weekend, you MUST tell us asap. In addition, the full hotel payment will be needed by the following Monday 7th October.

We will be attending the “Play Expo” weekend in Blackpool on 11th, 12th & 13th October 2019. The show is the ultimate in gaming weekends in the UK. The Expo will see their biggest ever selection of consoles, computers, handhelds and PCs on the Blackpool show floor. As well as all the latest up to date games it will feature a big ‘Retro’ section and like the Manchester show last year Northern Lights Pinball will also be bringing a large pinball machine section with over 50 tables.

The kids (and parents) loved this visit last year and so we are going back. If you have been to a”Play Expo” show before you will know how much there is to do. Once in the exhibition, all the games are set to free play!

We will be giving free tickets to all our group members that wish to attend. You can arrange to stay at the Norbreck Castle Hotel where the event is being held. However, we have friends at the Carousel Hotel at the other end of the seafront and we have access to a limited number of family rooms at a special price. We will also include free tram passes.

In addition, the Blackpool illuminations will be on. The Carousel Hotel has given us a family room price of £70 per night for B&B (Fri, Sat & Sun). Evening meals can be added at £15.00 pp for a 3-course dinner and £10.00 pp for a 2-course dinner (We know this hotel well and as well as being a great venue the food is fabulous). You can, of course, opt for the local chippy, the are loads of them!
