Blackpool Christmas Guide
Blackpool at Christmas – Houndshill Shopping Centre
If you are planning on getting away for Christmas Blackpool will be ablaze with bright lights, dazzling entertainment and fun filled activities for the whole festive season. In mid November the Christmas lights in the centre of Blackpool town centre are switched on and their razzmatazz will fill the heart of the resort with festive spirit right through December. The popular Houndshill Shopping centre is a pleasant 10 minute walk from Hotel Libra Guest House.
Alongside the lights the centre will be transformed into a winter wonderland with entertainment and sparkling decorations lining the streets and shop windows decorated to amaze children and adults alike.
Winter Gardens, Grand Theatre – 10 Minutes from Hotel Libra Guest House
With shows, live music, carol singing and Christmas party nights being held in a wide variety of venues including the Grand Theatre, The Winter Gardens and The Sands venue on the promenade, there is lots of entertainment to choose from for all the family. Perhaps the most traditional of these forms of family fun is the pantomime. Blackpool will host two such family shows during the festive period. The Blackpool Tower Circus pantomime will run from November 27th to January 23rd. In addition several famous faces will also appear on stage in the pantomime at the Grand Theatre throughout December.
Hotel Libra guest house will all have added Christmas cheer for your break over the holiday and with special Christmas menus in the restaurants and hotels will satisfy your appetite for good food and drink.

Enjoy the Bracing Blackpool Sea Front
Whether you decide to walk along the beach, amble along the pier or take in the sculptures and exhibits along the promenade these open air attractions are open all day every day and as much a part of a visit to Blackpool at Christmas as any other time of year.
