All seats are free but a ticket is required for entry. Please keep your tickets handy, either in the Eventbrite app or print them out and bring them with you to the Winter Gardens. Seating is on a first-come basis.

Travelling by car and parking

From the M55 exit at junction 4, follow A583 into central Blackpool or for sat nav – postcode FY1 1HW.

Central Blackpool does have one-way systems and pedestrianised areas. You may wish to use one of the large, well sign-posted tourist car-parks close to the Promenade or there are 2 car-parks closer to the Winter Gardens.

A multi-storey facility is available within the Houndshill Shopping Centre. This is approx 150m from the Coronation Street entrance (lift access to the main areas of the Winter Gardens building) or approx. 300m from the Church Street entrance (ground level access to the main building)- the postcode of this car-park is FY1 4NY. This is a pay-on-return car-park.

Open air, ground level parking is also available on the corner of Adelaide Street and Alfred Street approx 200m from the Church Street entrance – the postcode of this car-park is FY1 4LA. This is a pay-&-display car-park.

Limited metered street-parking is also available close-by. St Johns Square is a shared use space and open to pedestrians only for long-periods. The Winter Gardens does not have on-site public parking.

A taxi rank is on Church Street, just a few minutes walk from the entrance to the building. Taxis may also drop off outside both entrances to the Winter Gardens subject to traffic restrictions.

Travelling by Coach

Book your group with the Festival office for more detailed information and a Coach parking pass. Group Bookings is an opportunity for churches to attend the festival as a group of 10 or more. A coordinator from your church will help organise coach transportation with the support of a festival representative. For churches or groups who can’t afford the expense of transportation, the Festival of Hope may be able to help financially. Our goal is to have 50% of the people on the bus who don’t know Christ invited by Christians.

Coaches must have a designated number and follow the designated route as identified with your Coach parking pass. Arrangements have been made for coaches to drop off and pick up at the Winter Gardens. Coaches are not permitted to wait in the area during the performance and must park in the Festival Coach Park.

For all enquiries or group registration please contact info@lancashirefestivalofhope.co.uk or telephone 01253 922560

Travelling by train (Most Preferred)
