In a facebook post seen earlier today – Blackpool entertainment stalwart Basil Newby MBE has suggested that after 10 months off – hes back and ready to face new challenges.

The statement accompanied the Cher song You haven’t seen the last of me which could also be a clue that Basil still has a few more tricks up his sleeve.


We have not had any confirmation at present from Thwaites but it is suggested that Basil may have bought back the iconic venue after handing it over to the Lancashire based brewery last year.
