2 nights dinner, bed & breakfast in Blackpool with nightly entertainment


2 nights dinner, bed & breakfast in Blackpool with nightly entertainment


Our wonderful weekender celebrates the eclectic blend of rhythm and blues, soul, funk, gospel and pop that is Motown. Forged in ’60’s and ’70’s Detroit, the hit record-label caused a sensation, crossing cultural divides and launching superstars such as The Jackson 5, Diana Ross and The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and many more.


To get us warmed up and the party started, on Friday we enjoy an evening dedicated to the best of ‘60s and Soul with our talented keyboard player and singer Chris and Gabi, members of Relative Cool. Our duo will be accompanied by our DJ who will be playing the best tracks from the swinging ’60s.


On Saturday night our 5-piece band ‘Relative Cool’, featuring lead female vocals, guitar, bass, drums and keys, will perform some of Motown’s best known hits that are sure to get you singing along and up on the dance-floor. There is also a DJ to keep the party going well into the night.

There is also an acoustic ’60s sing-a-long session on Saturday afternoon.


Food and Drink

Included in the price are two drinks vouchers per person per night*  which can be redeemed at the function suite bar. A three-course buffet dinner will be served in The Promenade Restaurant each evening before the entertainment begins, followed the next day by a hearty buffet breakfast.


*Drinks voucher redeemable for: Pint of non-premium beer/lager, Glass of House Wine 125ml, House Spirit & dash and soft drink – only redeemable at function bar



Blackpool is one of the UK’s top seaside destinations and there is plenty for your group to see and do…even on a cold day in January. Greatdays are happy to arrange visits to attractions such as The Tower Ballroom, Madame Tussauds or the Blackpool Tower Dungeons (expect to be frightfully entertained). There are also places to explore on foot including the bustling town centre, North Pier, the Victorian Promenade and Blackpool Beach. We are also happy to suggest attractions and stops on your journey to and from Blackpool.
