The Blackpool Balloon Bash started in 2014 as a fun-filled event, aimed at bringing together like minded people to learn from the best balloon twisters in the world. Our goal has always been to create a great event regardless of experience.

And as a result, every year the bash has continued to grow.

In 2018 we had to move to a larger venue, and in 2020 the Bash moved again to its new home at The Imperial Hotel in Blackpool.

A great venue that will allow the Bash to continue growing. And with the support of our amazing sponsors and delegates, we’ll continue to bring in star lecturers from around the world, ensuring Blackpool Balloon Bash remains a world class event.
