Coronation Street stars, Wendi Peters and Peter Gunn have been sharing their passion for Blackburn in a new Visitor Guide published this month by the Blackburn Business Improvement District (BID) and distributed to selected postcodes across Lancashire.
The 64 page magazine includes details of the town centre events scheduled for Christmas and a competition to win £500 shopping vouchers with The Mall.
The magazine also features a behind-the-scenes look at the preparations for the King George’s Hall Christmas spectacular Beauty and the Beast.
Feature writer, Diane Cooke and photographer, Paul Adams who previously worked for the Lancashire Telegraph have contributed to the publication which also includes features on Nigel Womack, the enigmatic hairdresser on Town Hall Street and Paul Nuttall of Reidys. ‘At Home with the Dean’ introduces the Very Reverend Peter Howell-Jones at Blackburn Cathedral and there’s an interview with Alastair Murdoch of the Cotton Exchange who talks about rescuing and restoring the old Apollo cinema on King William Street.
