Heritage Blackpool

 The heritage service preserves, develops and celebrates Blackpool’s amazing heritage. We do this in a number of ways.

  • The History Centre: a place for local study, family history, research and public access to the historic collections
  • Heritage learning and engagement: we run an interesting and changing events programme featuring our popular Bygone Days programme of free talks by guest speakers. We also offer paid events and bookings in our programme of tours and talks created and delivered by dedicated volunteers, and the publication of the free heritage newsletter with stories researched and written by local people
  • Collections: we actively collect and preserve material related to Blackpool and its stories. Many of these are accessible through the history centre by appointment
