Blackburn Heritage Festival

Vintage fairground rides dotted around the town centre will be a key feature of this year’s Blackburn Heritage Festival as part of a drive to encourage visitors to explore different parts of the town on foot.
The big hospice tombola which will be at the Transdev site - free buses will be on hand to transport you around the festival sites so don't miss us!
The Blackburn Business Improvement District (BID) has subsidised the cost of a 40 foot Victorian Carousel, a vintage helter-skelter and an old fashioned big wheel, which will be split up in locations including King William Street and Sudell Cross to encourage a spread of footfall. Rides will be just £1!
A number of new attractions are joining the line-up for this year’s festival including a classic car show, a mobile museum featuring obsolete technology and four ‘hop-on hop-off’ vintage buses to transport visitors around the venues.
