THE New Year was celebrated in style during a glittering party at one of Blackpool’s most iconic venues.
The Empress Ballroom in the Winter Gardens played host to the New Year’s Eve event, which was attended by around 1,000 people.
Partygoers joined hands for a rousing rendition of the traditional song Auld Lang Syne at midnight while entertainment was provided by the party band Beat Street International and children’s entertainer Uncle Russ.
Phil Jackson, assistant operations manager at the Winter Gardens, said: “It’s been absolutely fantastic, everyone’s enjoyed themselves.
“We’ve had a DJ, we’ve had a live band and kids entertainment too.”
The evening was hosted by Joni Pill.
