About us

To see our new video just click   WE ARE BLACKPOOL SOUTH ROTARY.  Get a snapshot of what we did in 2016.

To accompany the visuals you can listen to Honorary Member and Rotary Town Crier Barry McQueen playing the Post Horn Gallop, followed by his rendition of ‘My Little Ukulele’ from George Formby’s1935  film ‘Off the Dole’. As a contrast, by kind permission of Honorary Member Tony Jo, listen to the superb group ‘Bond Legacy’ singing ‘Skyfall’ and to wrap it up we have Peter Jebson playing the Mighty Tower Ballroom Wurlitzer. 

We are proud to be a Rotary Club in Blackpool, arguably Britain’s Premier Seaside Resort.    

Blackpool Tower is a welcome sight to those coming to Blackpool and promises a warm welcome to all.

You will also find a warm welcome at Blackpool South Rotary Club.
