Preview: A sneaky peek at heritage events

It is 20 years since a diverse range of normally closed landmark buildings were first encouraged to open their doors to the public each autumn.

Heritage Open Days has gone from strength to strength since then.  To celebrate its success across Blackpool and the Fylde Coast, a special exhibition is being held at the Stanley Park Visitor Centre.

It will feature fascinating background and fabulous photos of some of the 54 architectural treasures in the 2014 programme and is a great way to get a sneak preview of what’s on offer and plan your own exploration of all the places that make our local history and culture so special.

The exhibition has been put together by the Community Heritage Programme at the Blackpool Volunteer Centre, and members of the team will be on hand to answer all your questions.

The exhibition will be opened on 19 August and will run Wednesday to Sunday from 11am to 3pm, until mid-September.

This year, Heritage Open Days will be running from Thursday, September 11 to Sunday, September 14.
