Blackpool Pleasure Beach will extend its season into weekends up to 13 December amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

The announcement co-incides with the news that Blackpool’s famous iluminations will be extended into January 2021.

The move is seen as a response to the curtailment of the amusement park’s operations by COVID-19.

The park has been closed since March, with the UK government indicating that the hospitality industry will not be permitted to re-open until at least 4 July.

Holders of the Pleasure Beach’s annual pass will automatically have access to the extended opening dates.
