“Best weekend EVER!!!!”
Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

Had the best weekend with amazing people. The Merrie England & more importantly Joey Blower certainly know how to put on a show.. Staff were great, the acts were second to none.. Bay City Rollers, Brotherhood of Man, Black Lace to mention a few.. Can't wait to come again..

“Blofest 2 was awesome”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Love Joey blower the comedian...although not for the easily offended. We attended his Blofest which is now to be held every year. Over £10,100 was raised for cancer research so as well as having fun we were also helping others less fortunate than ourselves.

“Merrie England Bar AKA Joey Blowers domain”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

I love this bar!! I found it 10 years ago when wandering in one Saturday afternoon on a weekend break to Blackpool to find a rude, offensive, crude comedian ripping his crowd to shreds. I laughed til I cried and have returned every year since.
The drinks are cheap, the entertainment plentiful and its location on the pier close to town is perfect.
Just returned from this years Blofest, google it, and had a ball.
See you next year :)
