What does Lytham mean to you? Leafy haven? Ladies what lunch? Shopping mecca or playtime paradise? Lytham Festival, in conjunction with Fylde Borough Council and the Arts Partnership for Fylde, invite you to explore Lytham through different eyes this summer.
Follow the brand new Counterpart trail between 20th July and 14th August to discover new ways of seeing this wonderful coastal town. Pick up a map from the Lytham Festival Hub in Lytham Square to find where twelve specially commissioned art interventions are located around Lytham and get curious about your surroundings. Search each space. Imagine alternative histories. Explore new possibilities. Tour the whole trail in one go or take your time and visit each site separately. Feeling inspired?
Counterpart offers plenty of opportunities for you to get creative too.
