90th Summer Celebration  8th July 2017

Blackpool’s Stanley Park will be celebrating its 90th Summer on the 8th July 2017.  We will be having entertainment, parades, exhibitions and music on the bandstand.  If you’ve got personal memories of early days on the park, or any photos, we’ll be holding sessions in the Visitor Centre where you could share them for use in our exhibition.  

Edward Stanley, the 19th Earl of Derby, will be attending.  Several local schools will be attending and we’re hoping some more will respond to our invitation.
