Heritage Champions

The Blackpool Heritage Champions Group was launched on 31st March 2010 at St. John's Conference Centre. Originally part of the Community Learning Champions scheme, the group aimed to promote interest in Blackpool's heritage.

Seven years on and now run by Blackpool Council, the programme is flourishing with successful projects, such as Blackpool Heritage News, Blackpool Heritage Tours and the new Community Talks project.

The Heritage Champions are all very unique in their interests, characters and life expriences, but Blackpool's heritage has brought them together and are keen to pass on their knowledge of the local history to others.
