The Empress Ballroom is one of the major venues at the Winter Gardens complex in Blackpool.
It has a capacity of 3,000 and is the setting for numerous events such as political party conferences, music concerts and dancing.
Regular annual events held here include the World Matchplay darts championships and the Blackpool Dance Festival. Notable gigs in recent years include Pet Shop Boys, Paul Weller, Stone Roses, The Verve, Elbow, The Prodigy, and Florence and the Machine.
In 2010 Blackpool Council bought the Empress Ballroom and Winter Gardens complex from Leisure Parcs. Restoration work commenced later that year.
The closest parking is the multi-storey car park at the Houndshill Shopping Centre.
