BLACKPOOL has long been regarded as Britain’s undisputed capital of entertainment. This new book - Blackpool: The People’s Playground - is a panoramic tribute to this great seaside town, celebrating Blackpool’s glittering heritage whilst also putting a very emphatic focus on the future. The book is a partnership with the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA), Blackpool Council and ReBlackpool. It features a special foreword by Lord McNally of Blackpool. Students at the Blackpool & the Fylde College’s School of Art & Design took many of the photographs. It also features the winning photographs from the nationwide ‘Blackpool – Take a Fresh Look’ photographic competition launched in the summer by visitBlackpool and the Lancashire and Blackpool Tourist Board, and supported by the NWDA.
