There will once more be three days of fun at the Arena at the South Shore attraction, from October 20 to 22 with tickets on sale today.

Last year 12,000 people attended The Arena at Blackpool Pleasure Beach and 9,000 litres of slime were used across the weekend.

Last year’s six sell-out shows saw YouTube teen sensation JoJo Siwa make her UK performance debut.
