Residents can get a taster of Blackpool’s new museum in a two-day event this weekend.

Visitors to the Pavilion Theatre and Horseshoe at the Winter Gardens on Friday and Saturday will get a taster of what’s in store for the celebration of the resort’s history.

There will be chances to get hands on with objects from the past, and people can have a go at building their own tower with artist Nicola Dale.

Old films, from British Pathe, will show Blackpool through the ages, while residents of today will be seen on screen sharing their memories of growing up and living in Blackpool.
