"There’s no two ways about it, the weekend is the time Blackpool really comes alive. Here at Weekend Blackpool we have the knowledge and know-how to enable you to enjoy your time in the UK’s Entertainment Capital to the max. Whether on the pull, seeing out your friend’s last few days of freedom on a Stag or Hen do or getting together as a group, we’ve got the hotel rooms, party venues and things to do ready whenever you are."
The sister venture of Little Touches, Weekend Blackpool has been in the works for quite some time now. As you will know only too well, bookings from large groups through the big names can be tough to manage, coming in unannounced and without any vetting. We aim to fix that by working closely with both hoteliers and group organisers to provide a streamlined experience that ensures safety on behalf of the property and owners, as well as high quality accommodation for the Guests.

All For One and One For All: Our New Blackpool Attraction and Show Tickets Leaflet and The Importance of our ''Referrer Army''
We've jazzed up our Little Touches ® Hotel Agency & Ticket Office leaflet this Autumn. A selection of some of the big names we sell for are there on the front in glorious Technicolor and overleaf you'll find a roll call of well-knowns too.
A prominent feature of our Blackpool Destination Guide, our Big Names in Blackpool include:
- Merlin Entertainments' Tower, Ballroom, Dungeon, Circus, Jungle Jim's, Madame Tussauds and SeaLife
- Blackpool Pleasure Beach shows including Hot Ice and Evolution of Magic
- Blackpool Zoo
- Blackpool Transport
- Blackpool Pier shows including Central's Kings and Queens
- Funny Girls
- Viva Blackpool
- Our Bond Street neighbours LuceMajicus
Our ''referrer army'' of hoteliers in the streets surrounding our Bond Street/Withnell Road crossroads base in South Shore have been a key part of the continued growth and success of our Ticket Office, led by the likes of The Old Coach House (Dean Street) and Branston Lodge (Withnell Road). Taking a proactive vs. atomised approach, they view us as a welcome extension to their offering.
Be sure to keep a watchful eye on both our Google My Business profile and Facebook Page for reviews and recommendations relating to the services we serve up a mere two streets away from Blackpool Pleasure Beach and close to Sandcastle Waterpark, Grosvenor Casino and Wetherspoon's magnificent superpub The Velvet Coaster.
As a company that puts words firmly before numbers, we've been encouraged by Facebook's move to axe its 1 to 5 star ratings in favour of written recommendations of at least 25 characters that are either/or...good/bad.

Q&A with Fraser Bloy – Inspired Energy plc
This week we sat down with energy consultant Fraser Bloy to discover how he can assist our members with their utilities contracts.
How well do you know the hotel industry?
I was born and raised in the hotel industry. My parents owned and managed a hotel in Blackpool, so the industry was a major part of my daily life growing up and continued after I left school.
I have an HND qualification in Hotel Catering and Institutional Management and decades of experience within the hospitality sector, extending to front of house, hotel management and for a number of years I was a chef at a well-known hotel in France. To bring things up to date, I’m working towards a BA (Hons) degree in Hospitality Management at the University of Central Lancashire.
My plethora of experience has made me very passionate about the industry.
Explain your typical day as an energy consultant for Little Touches
As a trusted Little Touches representative, I visit hotels across Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde to help members reduce their energy bills and consumption and tackle carbon problems, by providing a range of energy procurement and management services.
How can you help Little Touches members save money on their utility bills?
No matter the size of your hotel, saving energy can reap big rewards. Aside from reducing your carbon footprint, shrinking your property’s energy bill is an easy way to increase your profits, and I can help you do it.
However, obtaining the best prices for business requires skill. By appointing me as your specialist energy consultant, I can manage this burden by negotiating your energy and water contracts, saving you money.
Inspired is great local company that works with all the major UK utility suppliers so our clients secure supply contracts suitable for their requirements. We are independent of all suppliers, meaning we work in your best interests to secure the best deals on the market.
Over the next few weeks, Fraser will be visiting all the Little Touches hotels to discuss how he can assist you with your business energy requirements. So please give him a warm welcome in your hotel and he will be delighted to discuss how Inspired Energy plc can save you up to 15% on your annual electricity and gas costs.
