NOT everyone sleeps it off on Boxing Day. Lancashire organisers Hoyle Promotions have been organising a Giant Boxing Day Fair at the Empress Ballroom at Blackpool Winter Gardens for more than 20 years and both public and trade attendance grows from year to year.

Last year’s event exceeded everyone’s expectations, and business proved so good Sean Hoyle tells me an exra 50 stalls will be added this year bringing the total up to over 300.

The additional space will be available in the Princess Suite, adjacent to the Empress Ballroom, and a special promotional price of £30 has been fixed for these stalls, with additional room for furniture dealers. Unloading to the new room is directly from roadside.
