The 41st Annual Awards and Dinner takes place in the Paradise Room, Blackpool Pleasure Beach on Friday 26th February 2016.
The event begins at 6:15pm with a drinks reception, followed by the presentation of the Awards at 7pm and then the Dinner at 8pm.
This year's event is a special one for those of our members working on the renovation of the Turkish Baths at the Imperial hotel. They will be presented with certificates in recognition of their ongoing hard work by Blackpool Council.
The Awards ceremony and Dinner is a "black tie" event but is also a very enjoyable celebration of the achievements of many groups in Blackpool in 2015.
Tickets cost £30 each, which includes the awards ceremony, drinks reception and a four course meal. Click here for more details.

Blackpool has 7 miles of diverse and well maintained promenade, several parks and open spaces. It is also a major centre of entertainment, as marked by the Comedy Carpet, and ballroom dancing at the beautiful Tower Ballroom and the Winter Gardens. The Opera House was host to the Royal Variety Show in 1955 and 2009.
Blackpool also takes the environment seriously with attractively designed improvements to flood defences, major water cleanliness projects and sustainability technology being featured at the Solaris Centre.
