Peoples' Collections from Blackpool and the Fylde


Collections Show is the result of an open call to residents of Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre to display their collections of things. Exhibits range from an eccentric array of lighters, to a suite of Andy Capp paintings, to Daleks of all shapes and sizes, through to quilts, Jelly Babies and a submariner’s escape suit…

Alongside items from the public, sit a number of unlikely collections drawn from within the Grundy’s own acquisitions, including sets of furniture, coins, figures and paintings.

Exploring the idea of the collector, as well as the line between what is public and private, this exhibition presents the collections of objects, artefacts and personal passions of individuals and groups up and down the Fylde Coast.
