Lytham Hall displays to celebrate railway posters and their promotion of the Fylde coast

Home | Blackpool Gazette

Railway posters of Fylde coast scenes are to feature on an art trail in the grounds of Lytham Hall in the New Year.

 

The posters will be by acclaimed artist Nicky Thompson in the style of historic posters depicting iconic landmarks.

It will open on Friday, February 4, as the Hall begins its popular snowdrop walks season, and an accompanying exhibition of mid-century railway posters from the Lytham St Annes Art Collection will begin inside Lytham Hall in April.

Both displays will then run to September 30.
