Blackpool collection

Mark Rodgers spotted on BBC 6 o’clock News (12/3/2024) a feature about the new 'Showtown' attraction in Blackpool.

Dave Williamson saw an item on the BBC News website, about this, a new museum in Blackpool. He reports:

Amongst other items of clothing from famous entertainers, it claims to have an original bowler, signed by Stan.
Here is a copy of some content from the 'Visit Blackpool' website:

Objects on loan from the Victoria and Albert Museum include much loved comedian and entertainer Tommy Cooper’s headtwister illusion magic trick and costumes worn by comedy stars Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise.


A rare signed black bowler hat which was owned by film and comedy star Stan Laurel and acquired by Blackpool Council will also be on view.!-blackpool-s-first-museum-is-official


Book support

I’m a member of the Sunderland Seniors Supporters club (I’m not old enough, obviously) but I donated one of my books to their raffle, sold 10 copies on the back of it and the chap who won the raffle copy not only paid for it, but he attended our tent meeting the following week and brought two of his pals with him! They’ve all already confirmed that they will attend whenever possible in future and are keen on coming to Ulverston in July.
