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.
So over the summer we worked with John Morrow, a local community artist and musician who did guerrilla drumming around Revoe to engage passerbys! From this he approached the local pub and they agreed to let us use the back room to do free music workshops. These are run every Thursday and have been an eclectic mix of music, rhythm, movement and poetry and have been inclusive of all ages from 11 to 79! They have been a breath of fresh air introducing accessible creativity to the residents where the patrons wander in and get involved!
