Showtown and the Blackpool Museum Trust have gained support from many organisations. We wouldn’t be where we are now without their generous grants and gifts.

We would like to thank:

Blackpool Council

Northern Cultural Regeneration Fund

Lancashire Growth Deal

Coastal Communities Fund

The Garfield Weston Foundation

Wolfson Foundation

Equity - Blackpool Variety Branch

Symphony Lodge Blackpool No 4924

Victoria and Albert Museum

Showtown is a £14 million project and still has a fundraising target in the region of half a million. With the support of Blackpool Museum Trust we aim to raise the remaining funds before we open.

If you would like to help us reach this target, please donate.
