Our heritage team will be focusing on caring for the collections we've got for now.

Did you know that we hold thousands of objects and records in our collections? All of these things are cared for by our heritage team; experts in protecting and preserving our past.

Lots of these objects and records have been donated by people just like you. People who've lived and worked in Blackpool and love the town as much as we do.

At the moment our heritage team are all working really hard behind the scenes to reopen our History Centre in Blackpool Central Library and, of course, to open our brand new museum, Showtown, next year.

That's lots of work to do to bring the very best of our collections to you.

So, we have temporarily paused collecting any new material to the collections from Monday 20 June 2022 until Friday 28 April 2023.

We have been overwhelmed with the generosity and enthusiasm of people to gift their valued history to Blackpool's historic collections and their help in telling Blackpool's story. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far.

Please do contact us again next summer if you still wish to donate to our collection. We can't wait to see what show town gems you have to share.
