Welcome to the official Blackpool Royal British Legion Website.

Blackpool Royal British Legion Club is nestled between the restaurants of King Street right in the heart of Blackpool

This hidden gem of a social club is Blackpool RBL 

Handily placed close to the Winter Gardens, near to Blackpool North Train Station and surrounded by car parks, this friendly little club should be on every visitors list.

Everyone is welcome, RBL, CIU and weekly membership is available, and there is no admittance charge to the concert room.

In the season there is music Thursday and Friday evenings with Martha on the keyboards. Saturday and Sunday lunch and evening with our Resident Organist, Terry Webster. Plus of course 'Wacky Wednesday' every Wednesday afternoon.

 Legion Stalwart becomes Mayor of Blackpool 

At a ceremony held in the Town Hall on 15th May Ian Coleman was installed as the mayor of Blackpool.

Ian is well known to all Members of the Blackpool RBL, having served as President of the Club and Branch over the years. One of his major successes has been organizing and producing the famous 'Poppython' shows for over 21 years. The annual shows, which raised substantial amounts for the Poppy Appeal, also entertained Members and guests and raised the King Street Clubs profile to new heights. Ian will be the second former Club President to be Mayor of Blackpool, following in the footsteps of John Lander in 1986

Club Membership is now open and all prospective new members should attend one of the monthly Selection meetings commencing at 7.30 pm on the last Thursday of every month. Remember that under new Club Rules Members do not need to be ex-service.
Wednesday Afternoon Club
Brighten up your Wednesdays!  
Every Wednesday afternoon from 1 - 4 pm is 'Wacky Wednesday' 
60's - 70's music, dancing, bingo, raffle and free food.


A Defibrillator Unit has now been installed adjacent to the front door or our King Street premises.
The Unit was supplied courtesy of Blackpool Palatine Rotary Club.   We feel that this could be of great benefit to the Members and the local community, to whom it will also be accessible.   Several of our Members and Staff have attended a Red Cross training session on life saving techniques.

What the Press think of our Club......
"..there are acts on every day in the summer and between and Thursdays and Sundays in winter.  It means that older folk have somewhere to go for entertainment and company where they know they will get a friendly welcome and can relax in safe surroundings.   So while there is no doubt the Club deserves its accolades for its amazing fund raising efforts, it's daily contribution to the lives of many people should not be overlooked.    The Club's role as a place where friendships are forged and renewed, and a place where those in need of welfare assistance can go to seek help is vital to the towns social fabric."
