Blackburn to bid for City Status

Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council has announced its intention to bid for City Status as part of a national competition to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022. 

The Council believes the town’s unique strengths and spirit, especially how its diverse communities work together showing real grit and determination to see Blackburn progress, places it in a powerful position to be successful. 

The application will take in lessons from previous bid applications, highlighting its economic and cultural strengths and historical links to Royalty, both past and present.  Residents, community groups, business representatives, and voluntary organisations will be invited to get involved to help create a compelling story which accurately reflects why we deserve the honour.
