LeftCoast is a programme of arts and creative activity happening across Blackpool and Wyre. We’re all about creating amazing art on your doorstep. From jaw-dropping spectacle to intimate experiences in your neighbourhood, we want to make art happen. In the process we hope to inspire and support creatives who live, work and study here.

We want you to be part of the art transformation happening in your area. You might be an artist, parent, greengrocer or teacher – anyone in fact.

You could help shape your neighbourhood through our community activities, get support to develop your skills, create new projects with our Future Popular commissions or become a volunteer in our LeftCoast Envoys programme – the possibilities are endless.

We can also let you know about the wealth of arts and cultural activity taking place across the Fylde Coast, from our nationally recognised arts organisations The Grundy Art Gallery and The Grand Theatre to independent festivals, artist studios and pop up galleries.

Don’t forget to join us to find out all the latest information about what we’ve got in store.

LeftCoast has been brought together by a local partnership of organisations including Blackpool Coastal Housing, Blackpool Council, Wyre Council, Blackpool Grand Theatre and Merlin Entertainments. We’re funded by Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places Programme.
