Chris Hopkins

Your Thursday night Organist Chris Hopkins

Chris started playing for Blackpool Dance Holidays right from the start of it’s conception a resident organist at The Blackpool Tower in 1995, you may of heard him play and danced to his music for many years as he has developed his own unique style and has become a firm favourite with the dancers there, so who better could we ask to get our Live Music Nights of the ground.

If you  recognise Chris that probably because he has made numerous TV/ Radio appearance’s promoting The Blackpool Tower Ballroom, including Strictly Come Dancing and Britain’s Favourite View he also played [the Organ] at his beloved Manchester United for their foundation.

When he’s not at Norbreck Hotel, The Blackpool Tower or his numerous other dance venues, he can be found wandering the Lake District, or the Scottish Highlands where he is a keen Landscape photographer, or you might meet him on the Blackpool roads as he is a fully qualified Approved Driving Instructor, and taught many Blackpool residents and dancers to pass their driving tests.
