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!

We will be selling a variety of our crafty wares: jewellery, accessories and, of course, lovely woolly items courtesy of Knittaz with Attitude.  Our profits will go into providing more inclusive arts activities in Blackpool.

The launch party took place on Friday 24th August, with plenty of people coming along to wish us luck in our new venture.  There was a competition for the best dressed vintage singleton or couple, with the winner receiving £20 to spend in Charabanc and live entertainment.
