We were excited to be a part this year’s Blackpool Pride Festival over the weekend, exhibiting two of our pop up museums in the Arts and Heritage Exhibition area at The Winter Gardens.
On both Saturday and Sunday we had ‘Blackpool Performers’ and ‘Hitting the Deck’ on display for visitors to come and explore. There was a lot of interest shown in Blackpool’s Treasure Trove and we were on hand to chat to visitors about the project and the work that has been achieved so far with all our community groups.
We got a positive response from our visitors and various groups of people approached to have a play about with the dressing up items on Blackpool Performers. There was also lots of interest in the historical interpretation on both museums and of course their visual appeal, eye catching to many visitors from across the room.
The festival itself was very lively, with lots of wonderful entertainment and interesting stalls and exhibits. Our pop up museums were situated next to another fabulous exhibition space, a photography exhibition called ‘Inside Out’ by Red Snapper Photography.
We hope those that attended Pride had a fantastic weekend!
