A Royal Visit to the Tower Ballroom

As part of Blackpool Tower's 125th anniversary year, the Tower was honoured by a visit by HRH Sophie, Countess of Wessex on 1st October. One of the highlights of the occasion was a visit to the Tower Ballroom where the countess, apparently a Strictly Come Dancing fan, was tempted to dance a waltz, to music played by Phil on the Wurlitzer. Phil, who was also presented to the countess, has commented that Sophie was 'a good dancer'.
