18 things to do in Blackpool during Annual Convention

1. Pick up a freebie

Be at the front of the queue at the Winter Gardens on Friday so you can pick up loads of freebies from our exhibitors in the Registration hall. Doors open at 1pm!

No trip to Blackpool is complete without purchasing a stick of rock, a pair of dodgy shades and an inflatable dolphin! Remember to leave the inflatables in the hotel before you come out at night!







3. Praise indeed

Cheer on the YFC fundraisers as they arrive at the Winter Gardens after their epic challenges to reach Blackpool. Or why not organise your own fundraiser so you can arrive in glory?

Feel glam in your best clothes on Friday night for our black tie event. Expect a shock if you’ve only ever seen your YFC mates in club shirts and muddy boots!
