DISCOVER: Blackpool - Health tourism for the industrial classes

Join us for this interesting talk by Keith Myerscough.

In the late-Victorian era Lancashire’s working classes came to Blackpool in search of respite from the ravages of their urban-industrial lives.

Attracted by the sea and its bracing breezes, Blackpool’s leisure entrepreneurs built ‘Pleasure Palaces’ that offered variety, theatre performances and the opportunity to participate in health-giving aquatic activities.

Learn more about this fascinating era of Victorian Blackpool.

No need to book - just come along! Seats are available on a first come, first served basis.
