George Formby Weekends Blackpool
The George Formby Society congregates in Blackpool four times a year in remembrance of a British Icon of yester- year and a man who sang cheeky songs while playing his Ukulele, looking boyish, mischievous and unfazed. A Lancashire Lad born and bred George was a Black and White TV star who wowed millions across the world. George himself played Blackpool and sang a song called “With me little Stick of Blackpool Rock.”

The New Kent Hotel would like to offer a very warm welcome to visitors from the George Formby Society.

Please bring your favorite DVDs and enjoy them in our warm spacious lounge on our 32″ Plasma TV. The lounge is fully licensed and with our new sofa and comfy chairs we hope your stay with us will be a relaxing one.
I personally remember watching George Formby films with my Nanny Smith when I was a small boy as I think he was one of the biggest stars during my Nanny Smith’s younger days. My favorite song is “When I am cleaning windows” which always brings back memories I have of my childhood and of my Mothers Mum me Nan.
