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 will move 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.



This is where we give each competitor a selection of Qualatex balloons.

All competitors get the same balloons. Each balloon must be used in part or full un-inflated or inflated.

This is quite self explanatory so get your thinking caps on and start coming up with a piece as original as it can be.
All the Qualatex balloons are of your choice, so you can be as adventurous as you want.
But remember, it must be completed in 5 minutes.
This again is quite self explanatory.

So get your thinking caps on and start coming up with a piece as original as it can be.

This is awarded to the person that helps you the most over the bash weekend.
This is open to everyone apart from the organisers and the lecturers, but if any of these people help you over the weekend they can get your vote.
