Looking for a unique gift or just want to join us for our Christmas party? Head to Charabanc for an evening of handmade and locally produced delights on Thursday 30th November 2017 from 6pm to 8pm.
We have a fantastic selection of gift ideas from many local artists and makers.
Not only is this a great chance to peruse our products, many of which are perfect for Christmas gifts, but also to warm up with a glass of mulled cider and a tasty treat.
We’re looking for awesome volunteers to help us run our town centre shop Charabanc.
Our shop front
Charabanc is located at 1 Olympia Buildings Coronation Street, Blackpool, FY1 4NY and sells items made by local designers, artists and makers. Commission from sales pays for the upkeep of the shop and helps to subsidise other low cost arts activities and projects such as young people’s art workshops and film screenings.
We have plenty of volunteering opportunities available as we want to increase our opening hours.
You’ll receive appropriate training and we’re pleased to offer our volunteers a financial contribution to lunch and transport, so there’s no need to be out of pocket when you’re helping us out!
For more information on becoming a volunteer please complete this online form.
