The History Centre

In the February 2020 storms the bad weather caused damage to the roof of Blackpool Central Library. This damage is situated over the store rooms that house the historic collections.

The Heritage Service team acted quickly and removed all collections at risk of damage. No collections were damaged by the water.

Unfortunately, the History Centre will remain closed while the damage to the roof is assessed and repairs are undertaken. This closure has been prolonged even further due to the current situation with Covid-19. Some repair works have been successful but more work is ongoing. We will continue to update the public with the progress of the repairs and the re-opening of the building as we receive the information.

Date of closure: 24 February 2020
