Blackpool’s popular festival of literature and arts, 1 – 4 July


Blackpool’s popular festival of literature and arts, Wordpool, is back for 2015.

The always popular festival – which runs from July 1 to July 4 – is now in its ninth year and will again feature a host of top authors, poets and speakers as well as a free family fun day known as Story Safari.

A huge hit with families in previous years, the family fun day will feature up to 20 different events, activities and attractions all crammed in to three hours of fun from 1pm on Saturday June 4.

So come and search the park for giant pigeons, encounter our huge bubble breathing dragon or tackle the amazing Tower Menagerie.

Children (or those who are children at heart) can become a safari character themselves by making a magical mask to wear during all the exciting activities and you can bring a picnic or join us at the Tiger’s Tea Party.

For those with a more grown-up literary focus there are also a range of exciting events.

All library events include drinks and a snack and tickets cost £3 with 50p off for library members.

Members can also buy a Wordpool festival pass, entitling you to entry to and refreshments at all the events, for just £16 (£12 for Blackpool Library Members*) and day passes are available for Thursday and Friday priced at £10 (£8*) and £8 (£6*) respectively.

To buy tickets, visit Central Library today or go to www.eventbrite.co.uk and search for “Wordpool”.
