Blackpool flies the flag for LGBT conference

Blackpool will fly the flag to welcome UNISON ‘sLGBT conference in November; the resort has anounced that the rainbow flag will fly not just above the town hall -but on top of the world famous Blackpool Tower.

From Thursday 20 November until Sunday 23, the flags will be visible to welcome the conference and its delegates to the North West town.

In recent years, the illuminations on the tower have undergone an upgrade, now using 25,000 eco-friendly LED lights, which means the tower can be lit in any colour, pattern or moving, multi-colour display.

And to further show support for our conference, Blackpool council and the company that runs the tower, Merlin Entertainment, will light the tower itself each evening in rainbow colours.

Registration for November’s conference closes on 26 September. See the dedicated conference page of the website for more details.
