Enhanced services will operate at bank holidays and other special events including runs further afield on the tramway to include Little Bispham and Fleetwood.

BLUE - the core timetable as described above,
GREEN - Four heritage fleet trams operating between Pleasure Beach and Little Bispham from 1000hrs to 1800hrs, every twenty minutes
