September & October
Through the Illuminations season we have been working with communities across Fylde and Wyre. Returning for 2019, Fit2Glow, in partnership with Blackpool FC Community Trust, has seen hundreds of primary school children take part in glow-in-the dark football tournaments.
Teams from all primary schools will don neon bibs, glow in the dark accessories and face paint for the 5-a-side competition, in an innovative and fun-filled event, which forms just part of the Education and Health initiative work undertaken by BFCCT.
The unique concept offers a perfect mix of fun, sport and family activity. The heats will take place at Blackpool Sports Centres. The sports halls will be transformed into a playground of ultraviolet light and glow in the dark sport; when the lights are switched off, the games begin.
The Grand Final will take place in the Blackpool Tower Circus on Wednesday Thursday 16 October at 9.30am.
When I Grow Up
Lightpool Festival in partnership with Primary Futures, have developed an exciting way for children in Year 5 Primary school to think about their future career potential. Following on from the Schools participation in the Primary Futures programme, the children will draw their interpretation of ‘What they want to be when I grow up’.
One drawing from each school will be chosen to be made into an illuminated glow box, which will then be displayed in Blackpool Town Centre, as part of the Town Centre Art Trail for Lightpool Festival 2019.
The designs from each school will also be made into a ‘collage’ poster to be displayed in each school.
