Ellie and Kerry described how they used a co-production model and an innovative interpretative approach to create a non-traditional visitor experience - one full of funny jokes, magic tricks, and whoopee cushions.

Kerry described how over 19,000 people were consulted in the creation of this exciting new museum, helping to give locals a real sense of ownership over the project. Ellie detailed the development of the 'Showtown' concept and how it gives visitors behind-the-scenes access to Blackpool's entertainment scene. From its unique and humorous museum voice to its fun interactives and props, Showtown will offer visitors something very different from a traditional museum.

Showtown opens in March and tickets are available here.
