Blackpool Town Hall Guided Tour

On Saturday 10th September, Blackpool Civic Trust showed visitors around the Town Hall as part of Heritage Open Days. 

Chair of Blackpool Civic Trust, Joan Humble, said "it was a pleasure to be joined by the Mayor of Blackpool, Coun. Kath Rowson". Civic Trust volunteers showed many interested visitors around the building and explained its history. One visitor had come from Australia and spoke to the Mayor about her visit.

Notes from previous years

The Town Hall was just one of the many venues that proved popular with visitors. One hundred and seventy-six school pupils visited on Friday and were given a conducted tour by the Deputy Mayor and members of the Civic Trust. In an email of thanks to the Trust, St Kentigern's School (see photo below) thought that the visit had been especially valuable in promoting citizenship and strengthening links with our 'culturally rich town'. On the Saturday morning Civic Trust members were joined by the Mayor to guide 37 visitors around the Town Hall, including one visitor from the Czech Republic. Clearly word is getting out!
