The Literary events have become an important and enjoyable part of the festival. In the past we've had: JOHN LYDON, RAT SCABIES, GLEN MATLOCK, JAH WOBBLE, JORDAN, PENNY & STEVE (CRASS), STEVE & COLIN (Cock Sparrer), MONKEY, STEVE DIGGLE, DON LETTS, WATTIE, ANIMAL, PAULINE MURRAY, JELLO BIAFRA, CAPTAIN SENSIBLE, MICK & WAYNE (Slaughter & The Dogs )and many many more.
We are currently planning the event and looking to move it to a new home. The Blackpool Conference and Exhibition Centre is a brand new, purpose built events venue. It is the first major building development to happen on the Winter Gardens complex since the construction of the Opera House in 1939.
The new building is one of the largest venues of its kind in the north of England. It is split over two floors, with an exhibition space on first floor and a conference space with a capacity of 2000 on the second floor.
With a total 2400 square metres of dedicated space, we're really looking forward to planning how to use this space for the Literary Festival and Punk Art. More details to follow......
