Loos Trenches in Watson Road Park: The two-mile trench system was an exact replica of those on the Western Front. The trench system was created to help train thousands of soldiers based in or around the town. By 1916 when most of them had left for the Front, it was opened to the public as a tourist attraction, manned by wounded soldiers who were convalescing in the town. #ThereButNotThere

With Blackpool Armed Forces Week next week, we want to highlight Blackpool's war-time significance with Help for Heroes Official and the There But Not There UK campaign. We've been taking 'Tommy' around town to important historical sites to commemorate Blackpool's contribution. Our first picture will follow shortly! https://www.therebutnotthere.org.uk/

Live music, cabaret and burlesque will keep you entertained all night at the FREE Dance for Victory at The Blackpool Tower Ballroom! Get ready to jitterbug, jive, swing and lindy hop the night away whilst raising money for Help for Heroes Official! #SaluteOurForces https://www.theblackpooltower.com/events/dance-for-victory/
