“We are once again pleased to be supporting Blackpool Hockey Festival and cannot wait to have everyone here on the Saturday to see and enjoy our new looking venue since it reopened after the devastating fire in 2013. This year you will be upstairs and will have your own dedicated dance floor, DJ, VIP areas and terrace bar. We look forward to seeing you all on the night and just remember the one rule we have…Leave your worries at the door and let us look after you all!”

David Gee (Secretary – BHF)

“BHF are always striving to improve the offer for all our participants and we are truly amazed at the refurb Walkabout has undergone! The place is almost unrecognisable and I’m sure everyone will be blown away with what they see this year. I hope we can continue to build on the 3 year relationship we have started, and I guarantee a brilliant Saturday night once again for everyone. I personally and on behalf of all the committee, would like to say a big “thank you” to Nick and all the Walkabout team.”
