ONE of the UK’s most iconic attractions, The Blackpool Tower, turns a staggering 120 years old this year, and to celebrate, it is setting out on a mega memorabilia mission.

Providing over a century of fun to families from all across the North West, it now wants to relive the good times, and is calling on its visitors, past employees, and performers to help.

Whether it’s a souvenir from a childhood holiday, an old heirloom passed through the generations, a postcard from a friend vacationing or a black and white Polaroid from many moons ago – Blackpool Tower wants to know about it!

To celebrate the birthday, and the weird and wonderful memories it may hold, we want your mementos.
