Blackpool Council, with the support of Heritage Lottery Funding, is currently developing a Museum to tell the story of the town as the first working class seaside holiday resort in the world, capturing the entertainment industry which made Blackpool so popular.
It will tell the extraordinary story of Blackpool in a lively, interactive and fun way, exploring the entertainment history, how the landscape has developed, its pioneering spirit and all things seaside.
The Project Team say:- '
'As well as telling the big stories about the Tower, Illuminations and its many theatres we would like to feature people’s stories about growing up in and coming to Blackpool on their holidays.
Have you ridden a rollercoaster, danced on the piers, eaten fish and chips on the promenade? The Museum project team want to collect your memories to help bring these stories to life and begin an archive of holidaymaker’s memories.
We want to find out: How you travelled to Blackpool Where you stayed The things you did when you were there
We are interested in hearing from people who have visited Blackpool up until the 1990s, whether you visited every year or have only been once.'
