The Empress Grill has launched a new and exclusive event for cheese and wine connoisseurs - the Blackpool Cheese and Wine Evening.

General manager Kathy Smith said: “The evening will give people the chance to learn how to taste wine professionally, in pleasant surroundings.
“It will also unveil the secrets and hidden treasures inside the Winter Gardens.”
