WHAT’S ON THIS AUTUMN!

WHAT’S ON THIS AUTUMN!

There’s plenty to do in and around the Fylde Coast this Autumn.

CALLING ALL ART LOVERS – BLACKPOOL’S GRUNDY ART GALLERY IS ‘GOOD TO GO’!

Blackpool’s Grundy Art Gallery re-opened its doors on the 29th July, unveiling its new and pertinent ‘For Your Health and Pleasure’ exhibition and its exhibition programme for the rest of the year.

Their amended opening hours are Wednesday to Saturday from 11am-4pm and admission is completely free!

Health and Safety

The gallery has been working with Blackpool Council in order to adapt to government guidelines and has attained the new ‘We’re Good to Go’ Covid safe industry standard from VisitEngland.

The Lights

In addition to their new exhibition, the gallery has announced that they will present a light-themed exhibition from September 23rd to December 19th.

Organised to coincide with the Blackpool Illuminations, the exhibition will showcase the extent of Grundy’s existing light-themed collection, including works such as Tracey Emin’s ‘I know, I know, I know’.

BLACKPOOL ILLUMINATIONS

This extravagant light show has been dazzling crowds since 1912 but, like many other events this year, the traditional switch-on of the Blackpool Illuminations has been made virtual.

The free-to-access event, hosted by Diversity’s Ashley and Jordan Banjo, will be streamed live in association with MTV. The show will begin at 8:30pm on the 4th September and can be streamed here or on the MTV YouTube channel.

This year’s event will see performances from Melanie C, Fleur East, Becky Hill, Tom Grennan, Joel Corry, Diversity, and Blackpool’s own Rae Morris.

On a hugely positive note, the Illuminations display has been extended by two months, meaning Blackpool’s infamous promenade will be lit up from September to January!

You can see the switch-on times for each night here.

‘BRONTËS IN PENDLE’ LANCASHIRE WALK

Starting in the village of Trawden, this four and half mile walk through the countryside includes the beauty spot of Lumb Spout and the ruins of Wycoller Hall – areas frequented by the Brontë sisters.

Having spent much of their lives in Lancashire walking across the South Pennine Moors from their family home, Wycoller Hall is said by several experts to be the inspiration for Ferndean Manor in Charlotte Brontë’s novel, Jane Eyre.

LANCASHIRE CHEESE TRAILS – SAY CHEESE!

Lancashire is well-known for its cheese and has three aptly named walking trails dedicated to their three famous cheese types: creamy, crumbly and tasty.

This six-mile route of footpaths, tracks and a little bit of road, allows you to indulge in some of the area’s finest cheeses along the way.

You can also visit the award-winning Dewlay Cheese shop and learn about the history of cheese-making.

EVENTS TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN 2021

Sadly, some much loved events, including the St. Anne’s Kite Festival and the Blackpool Air Show, have been cancelled this year due to health and safety reasons.

Despite this, we hope you will feel inspired to try some of the many activities still available around the Fylde Coast this autumn and we look forward to the return of all social events next year!
