Dust off your dinner suit, roll out the red carpets and neatly stack the vol-au-vents (not forgetting, of course, a glass of reasonably priced Bulgarian bubbly) because it’s awards season!

OK, so the Blue Room’s celebration of the best Blackpool can offer might not involve any of the above.

But it is a good excuse to bring together some of the Fylde coast’s top musical talent and imbibe a festive sherbet or two.

The big do happens on Friday night as part of the venue’s A Very Messy Christmas evening – featuring performances from Kraul, The Lost Archives, The People, The Dots, The Blue Waves, Exit Strategy and Uncle Paul.

Not only will there be some rather unique festive performances (including the promise of a classic Christmas cover) but there are geunine awards to hand out too.

There’s four categories – best singer, best guitarist, best bassist and best band (as a drummer I can’t help but feel slightly left out).

The big gong of the night is undoubtedly the best band award, and there’s eight groups going head-to-head for the prize.

The Cheeky Keys, The Poly-Esters, The Lost Archives, The Senton Bombs, Dinosaurs are Dragons, CSOD, Black Eddy and Go Around Captain (pictured) are on the shortlist.

You can get your vote in by visiting https://www.facebook.com/theblueroombpl before 2pm on Friday.

Voting continues on Friday night with (and here’s a cunning ploy) one vote available for every drink bought at the bar.

And you can catch one of those nominated acts on Saturday night, The Poly-Esters, on a rather festively themed Blue Room bill.

They are joined by the The Cobras and Red Rooms.

Both nights kick-off at 9pm.
