This unique palette of colours tells us ten individual stories of people and places in Blackpool. It is a bespoke paint range for a town that is held in the nation’s consciousness for its ability to create joy and lift spirits. By maintaining and painting our properties and civic buildings using this paint range, we continue to care for Blackpool and the positive purpose it serves in peoples lives.
Painting the Town is more than a paint range, it is a place-making campaign bringing people together – residents, visitors and organisations and businesses – through the medium of colour.
Painting the Town is a shared desire for renewal in Blackpool – to bring life back to High Streets, to make exits and entrances better and brighter. By painting together, improving the built environment alongside one another, we can begin to reshape perceptions of the town in the longer term and build a Blackpool that attracts new investment, new employees and new visitors one paint pot at a time.
Painting the Town is a completely new way to experience and support Britain’s most iconic seaside town from wherever you live and work in the UK. Every tin carries a donation to improve the arts and culture offer in the town for residents and visitors alike.
Inspired from a commission by local artist Laura Shevaun Green, LeftCoast and Johnstone’s paint are proud to bring this Blackpool colour story to life. This paint range is bold, colourful and resilient just like the town and its people.
