Promoted by Blackpool Winter Gardens

Do you cringe when you see pictures of yourself in the 80s?  Or maybe you look at old photos of your mum and dad and say … did you really wear that in 1982? That’s hilarious!

To mark the arrival of classic 80s musical Fame the Musical at the Blackpool Opera House, we’re celebrating all things 80s to give you the chance of winning tickets to see the show.

There’s also an overnight stay in Blackpool up for grabs and an exclusive backstage experience!

Fame The Musical is enjoying its 30th anniversary tour (would you believe the film was released in 1980?) and stars soul queen Mica Paris, Keith Jack, who stole our hearts in BBC’s reality talent show Any Dream Will Do, and Jorgie Porter, who has graced our screens in Hollyoaks and Dancing On Ice.

It is showing at Blackpool Opera House from Monday August 13 to Saturday August 20.

Fame the Musical has seen seven West End runs since opening on Broadway in 1988 and it follows the lives of students at New York’s High School For The Performing Arts as they navigate their way through the emotions of life.

To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to enjoy this show, seek out your old photographs and send one to us. That’s all you need to do.

We’re on the look-out for those embarrassing 80s photos that make you put your head in your hands and go “oh no!” Or maybe you’re just super-ly proud of that perm and the shiny shell suit and you want to tell the world about how classy you were back in the day.

As an extra treat, one lucky ticket winner will be selected for our regional prize, which is an overnight stay in Blackpool and a money-can’t-buy prize of meeting the Fame cast backstage before the show at the Opera House.

To be in with a chance of winning, email your photographs to and put in the subject field BP Fame competition. Entries must be submitted before 5pm on Monday August 13.

Blackpool Opera House is one of Blackpool’s famous entertainment venues, and has become a second home to some of the biggest West End shows. Legends such as Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland have graced its stage.
