“It’s a great deal to cut rides to half price and will help families out when they are looking for something to do. 

“Obviously you cannot rely on the weather at this time of the year and we also have plenty to do indoors if it turns out wet or cold.

Mr Ball said the pier is working on putting together its biggest events programme ever for this year. 

“Some will be our current favourites – such as a magical Christmas, Halloween, carnival night, ten fireworks extravaganzas and Oktoberfest - with additions and changes,” he added.
