We have taken the very difficult decision to temporarily close The Blackpool Tower as a precautionary measure. We believe this is the right decision to protect the health and wellbeing of our employees, guests and local community. The attraction will remain closed until further notice. Please refer to our website and social media channels for further updates on re-opening. Guests with pre-booked tickets on dates when the attraction is not open will have their tickets revalidated so they can arrange their visit once the attraction reopens. We ask our guests to visit for more information.

Clinton Baptiste – ‘The Paranormalist Returns’

The Fifth Floor

The Blackpool Tower, Promenade, Blackpool FY1 4BJ

08 May 2020

A character made famous by classic television sitcom Phoenix Nights will be on stage at The Fifth Floor at Blackpool Tower in May 2020 during his extended UK tour.

Clinton Baptiste, the clairvoyant and psychic who was one of the hapless acts to appear on Peter Kay's smash hit Channel 4 show, is now being introduced to a new generation and brings his live show -  ‘The Paranormalist Returns’, to the Fifth Floor at Blackpool Tower on 8th May 2020.

You are promised an hilarious yet touching journey through Clinton's life, out the other side and beyond the celestial curtains!

The tour comes 18 years after Clinton, played by actor and comedian Alex Lowe appeared in Phoenix Nights, set in a Lancashire social club. More recently, he starred in a sold out 15 night run of Phoenix Nights Live at Manchester Arena in 2015, which raised £5 million for Comic Relief.

A spokesman for the tour said: "Clinton will give readings to the audience, offering advice from beyond the grave. He will predict your future, tell you about your past and all manner of spooky stuff an’ that.  But more, he’ll take you through his demise, his comeback and finally…on this special night, he will attempt to pass over to the other side and return, before the arena want you all out….with the answer!"

Clinton Baptiste – ‘The Paranormalist Returns’, visits Blackpool Tower at 7.30pm on 8th May 2020. Tickets (£18 + booking fee) from Ticketmaster.
