What to wear
Make sure you pack the essentials for your weekend away at Convention. With three nights of varied entertainment, you'll need to squash more than just a change of pants into your backpack! To make sure you're always looking your best, follow our handy dress code guide...
Friday night: Black Tie/Lounge Suit
WOMEN: Cocktail/evening dress, trouser suit, smart trousers including smart dark denim jeans and blouse/top and clean smart shoes.
MEN: Dinner or lounge suit, collared shirt and bow tie or tie. Smart trousers, including chinos/smart dark denim jeans, collared shirt and tie and clean smart shoes. Suit jackets/blazers are not essential.
Saturday night: Fancy dress – Glow in the Dark.

There are specific restrictions with regards to the fancy dress on Saturday night:
- NO powder paint
- NO rigid glow sticks (classed as a handheld object)
- NO face masks (this includes morph suits that cover your face).
Glow bracelets and necklaces are allowed. The venue will feature UV lighting on Saturday night, so YFC members should be wearing fancy dress appropriate for the venue to ‘light them up’.
Sunday night: Club Shirts
WOMEN AND MEN: Dress smartly – includes smart denim or YFC club shirts.
YFC club shirts bearing offensive wording or graphics will not be allowed into the venue. These shirts should not be worn at any time while in Blackpool.
FOR THE SAFETY OF EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY IN AN EMERGENCY EVACUATION:
Anything that could cause an obstruction in the event of an emergency evacuation cannot be taken into the venue – these items will be confiscated.
- No hard hats (which can be thrown or become a trip hazard)
- No steel toe-capped shoes or boots.
Any confiscated items will not be returned.
Regrettably there are no cloakroom facilities in the Winter Gardens for any of the evening events.
