Blackburn BID are currently pulling together a promotional package for Summer in Blackburn town centre 2021.
A range of events and activities will be taking place in the town centre during the summer holidays, taking advantage of people staying locally this summer and wanting things to do.
Blackburn BID, in partnership with and supported by the Council and The Mall, are delivering:
- Welcome Back to Blackburn summer shows – all-singing, all-dancing shows by Pop Up Entertainment on stage on King William Street, free and open to all, 30 July to 1 August (funded by BwD Council)
- Brickburn’s Brickosaurs – a brick model trail of dinosaurs throughout the town centre, 20 August to 1 September.
- The Creative Spaces trail – a series of 13 artworks with the theme of ‘community’ – has recently been installed in empty and public spaces around the town centre and will be in situ for the summer.
- Of Earth & Sky poetry installations.
We need you:
It would be great if we could promote these events along with other activities and events which you already have planned or can deliver at any time during the summer holidays – along the lines of the cancelled Workouts & Wellbeing Festival from March last year, and the kinds of things an animation team would deliver at a hotel – so guided walks, cycling sessions, climbing walls, taster fitness sessions, tai chi, yoga, family fun games, wellbeing workshops, arts and crafts sessions.
As well as animating the town centre, it’s an opportunity for you to engage with people and showcase the kinds of activities you already deliver.
I can help find space in the town centre if you don’t already have it – it could be indoors or outdoors.
Can you let me know if you’d like to be involved? If you’d like a chat about what you can do just drop me a line.
