Facilities Hire

We have invested heavily in our facilities in order to provide an excellent learning environment for our students. Most recently we have invested £5.5 million in a new theatre, two drama studios and new classrooms as well a new catering facilities and a Sports Hall.

The primary purpose of our campus is for the education of students attending the college. We do recognise, however, the benefit these facilities can bring to local community groups or larger organisations.

We have the flexibility to offer various combinations of rooms and depending on the combination and length of hire we may be able to offer discounted prices. We are also able to offer catering with most of our events, for full details and prices you will need to contact our Events Co-ordinator Emma Lund, at events@blackpoolsixth.ac.uk. It is important to note all prices in this booklet are basic prices per-hour and these may be subject to change depending on staffing levels and equipment needed to cover your event.
