Event description

Description

The UK's coastal heritage stands as an icon of Britishness. Revered and parodied in equal measure, it has stood the test of time and adapted to suit changes in taste and holiday fashions. But our seaside heritage is facing one of its biggest challenges yet: the impact of climate change. Vulnerable, often poorly maintained coastal structures face increasingly fierce attacks by the elements, and now their long-term future is under threat.

Join Allan Brodie of Historic England who will be launching his new book ‘The Seafront’ and Carl Carrington from Blackpool Council who will discuss the impact that climate change is having on Blackpool’s historic piers.

The evening will be introduced by Historic England Chairman Sir Laurie Magnus

A short drinks reception will follow the talks with an opportunity to buy a signed copy of Allan’s book ‘The Seafront’.

Event attendees will also get the opportunity to visit the London Transport Museum on the day of the event. On booking a special code will be provided so that you can gain access (on 5th March only). Please note that last admission into the museum is at 5pm and the museum closes at 6pm. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity.
