Blackpool Library Service is very excited to be teaming up with artist Sean Payne and Blackpool Illuminations to bring you a month-long range of activities to celebrate all things Who.

There will be a wide range of Dr Who books available from your local library as well as many activities in which you can participate.

You can get involved in a variety of other ways too:

We have a selection of  activity craft sheets which you can pick up from your local library to make a range of characters from a Weeping Angel to a Zygon. Return your finished character to be displayed in your library.

Take part in our Dr Who quiz and enter the draw to win a range of exciting prizes. Available in your local library.

Local artist Sean Payne will have a selection of his Dr Who related artwork on display at Central, Moor Park and Layton libraries.
