Winter Gardens - Blackpool Exhibition.

Casson Mann had a brief to transform the Blackpool winter gardens with a museum full of Blackpool heritage and celebrate the towns history. We had a few creative options to decide from I hose "roll up, roll up," this area was a lot about the past in Blackpool's circus. I love dance and performing and learning about the history of the circus was fascinating. I designed an exhibition for the back of stage area, 3 large bell jars encapsulating 3 different time period "20's, 70's and current". each bell jar has a snapshot in time of  dressing room from the performers of each era, including costumes for people to try on, music and dressing tables full of performers belongings. All back dropped with large scale prints of posters for the circus.
