Welcome to the Revoe Blackpool 'Our Bigger Story' website. This is part of the multi media evaluation of 15 Big Local areas in England. The website is an opportunity to follow what is changing in Revoe Blackpool as a result of Big Local over a ten year period.
The aim of the website is to share the learning from everything that is happening in Revoe Blackpool with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
Following a summer where we worked closely with many community artists and organisations we were invited to be involved in the Lightpool Parade! This involved using lanterns from our Winter Festival, a lot of glow sticks, lumidogs (we ran a workshop so you could decorate your pets!) and some lovely young people and their parents as well as our Chair and staff! The parade celebrates the illuminations and runs over half term. Our community development worker also took part in RUSH, which was a multimedia dance production with 120 community members form all over Blackpool who took part over 2 months to produce an amazing show looking at austerity and it's impact on Blackpool and it's people.
