The Blackpool Gazette is an English evening newspaper based in Blackpool, Lancashire. Published every day except Sunday, it covers the towns and communities of the Fylde coast. It was formerly named the Evening Gazette after initially being named The West Lancashire Evening Gazette.


The newspaper is published by Blackpool Gazette & Herald Ltd, and is known locally as The Gazette. Two other weekly newspapers are also published - the Lytham St.Annes Express and the Fleetwood Weekly News, as well as one free weekly newspaper, the Blackpool Reporter. All are owned by Johnston Press.[1]

The Gazette also publishes a daily online version in Polish, Witryana Polska - Polish Gazette to cater for the local Polish community.[2]

The Gazette also has a close link with local football club Blackpool F.C., although the newspaper decided to scrap club chairman Karl Oyston's weekly column "given such disgusting and offensive comments" he made to a Blackpool fan.[3]
