History Centre Closure

The recent bad weather has caused damage to the roof of Blackpool Central Library. This damage is situated over the store rooms that house the historic collections.

The Heritage Service team acted quickly and removed all collections at risk of damage. No collections were damaged by the water.

Unfortunately, the History Centre will remain closed while the damage to the roof is assessed and repairs are undertaken. This closure is anticipated to last for a month at present, but we will continue to update the public with the progress of the repairs.

Date of closure: 24 February 2020

Estimated date of reopening subject to updates and changes: 1 April 2020.
