Great advertising strategy, bet it didn't cost much (if anything at all) as well! Suppose it makes up for leaving the cover over the boards for soo long!

That makes perfect sense to be honest, get it open in time for one of the busiest weekends in Blackpool and reap the rewards with a lot of custom. :)

No doubt this will mean PB will have its traditonally quiet start to the season, but as we say every year, February to April isn't that vital, it's what happens from April to the end of the season that really does matter.
