Winter Gardens, Blackpool


Our ninth BRICK workshop will take place on 25 February 2015 in the Renaissance Room, Blackpool Winter Gardens, 97 Church Street, Blackpool, Lancashire FY1 1HL. Registration begins at 9:30 and the workshop runs 10:00 until 16:30 hours. The event will feature presentations, case studies, Q&A sessions, group discussions and networking opportunities for community groups and not-for-profit organisations whose focus is on entertainment venues in need of regeneration, including theatres, music halls, cinemas and piers, as well as core topics relevant to all heritage-led regeneration projects.

The workshop will cover the following topics:
• Exploring the full range of potential uses for your building/site and developing creative use options for it
• Understanding and addressing conservation and architectural design issues related to your project
• Maximising opportunities for earned income and working with private sector partners
• Integrating loans and/or social investment into your project’s funding package.

For further information please click here to read the Agenda which is subject to change as we endeavour to finalise the full workshop details.  Speakers include representatives of Blackpool City Council, The Theatres Trust, Locality, The Key Fund, Complex Development Projects, Foster Wilson Architects, Jericho Road Solutions, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust and more. Attendees will have the chance to discuss their projects and their options with heritage professionals during the day.

Registration will be maintained at just  £19 per person, including booking fees and VAT due to the generosity of Blackpool Council. Complimentary lunch & refreshments will be provided at the workshop. A number of travel bursaries of £25 per person (or £50 if your journey is over 200 miles)  are also available on application.

We encourage all community groups and those involved in heritage-led regeneration to take this opportunity to learn through BRICK over the next three years. For more information, please visit our BRICKwork website.

Information gathered from this survey will help us tailor the BRICK programme to suit the training needs within the heritage regeneration sector and allow us to measure the effectiveness of the workshop as a requirement for our Heritage Lottery Fund grant funding.
