A B&B will be a traditional Blackpool Bed and Breakfast re-imagined by artists for 21st Century. Its central mission is to support arts, culture, training and development opportunities for local communities and creatives whilst still performing as a highly attractive hotel for staying guests. We are completely rethinking how people can best experience amazing arts, so where better than the familiar icon of the B&B in the most popular and unusual town in the UK?
We will commission as many aspects of the re-creation of the hotel as possible from artists – integrating it into the physical space and day-to-day operations – and once open we will invest in a continual programme of new commissions, public engagement, learning and talent development. Check in on progress and check out how to be part of it.
A B&B is set up as Community Interest Company with support from LeftCoast, Arts Council England, Clore Duffield, Blackpool Council, Coastal Communities Fund, Community Business Fund and the Tudor Trust.
Support the arts while you sleep!
