Abingdon Street Studios

Abingdon St. Studios is a brand new initiative to develop much?needed artists? studios in the middle of Blackpool.

LeftCoast wants to supporting existing artists and attract new?ones to live and work in Blackpool. Artists frequently play a vital?role in animating and enlivening our town centres, acting as a?catalyst for regeneration. Studios are important both as an art?production space and as a generator of new ideas and?collaborations.

The Abingdon St. Studios are directly above the market in?Blackpool town centre and will provide space for between six?and eight artists? studios plus a new exhibition/project space.

The studios together with the Art Bed & Breakfast and The?Mount in Fleetwood will provide a vital incubator role?retaining early career artists from Blackpool and the Fylde?College. The will also support artists already practising here as?well as housing visiting creatives to produce new work.
