Works begin on our 5 Star Hotel in January 2018

The Sands Venue will undergo an amazing transformation from January 2018.

Work will begin on the new 5* hotel which will be built above the current Sands Venue site in the new year, with a completion date of spring 2019.


The Sands Venue and sea view restaurant will be closed and not re-open until the hotel is finished.


The Sands has been on site for over 7 years and in operation for nearly 14 years, from its original venue in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.


The expansion into a new all in one onsite entertainment centre has been an aim of the owners since day one and with the Sands being the catalyst for a higher end offering in Blackpool, it promises to be an exciting future for the company.

Sadly the closure of the Sands means that the December schedule of artists and New Years Eve party will be the last in its current format and anyone wishing to visit and experience these great shows, should book now to avoid disappointment.


The good news is the venue will transform itself into a new modern version of the original jazz, supper club, that begun in Gainsborough. Serving quality meals and continued live bands, something we are all looking forward to.


Along with the New Sands Venue will be a top class hotel, restaurant, bistro, ground floor bar and restaurant, expansion of the Wild West Diner, all available to the general public. Along with these facilities will be a spa, barbers, hairdressers, nail salon and hotel shop.

The new 96 room hotel will offer some of the largest standard rooms at 29 – 32 square metres and suites from 42 sq metres - 72 sq metres with further suites in excess of 72 sq metres with amazing sea views.


Although a modern 5* hotel the reception will be designed around a 1920’s – 30’s theme and a provision for the new Blackpool Museum will see us compliment the local community.


With the hotel situated adjacent to many of the key areas of Blackpool’s tourism centre it promises to deliver a year round experience for all of its customers.


We believe this new venture will not only give Blackpool something very different but create a quality hotel and venue that will entice other businesses to invest in the town.


We would like to thank all the people who have visited us a Merry Christmas and if you haven’t visited the Sands at Christmas before, get on down and book a show. If you have visited us previously but not booked a show yet, come and have a final drink and enjoy a show from our excellent Christmas line-up.


To all our customers the Sands Venue and its staff would like to wish you a fantastic, fun filled Christmas and New Year.


Peter Swann
