Love Letters From Blackpool, which uses songs, recorded interviews, found love letters, poetry and stories to tell a poignant comedy tale, will be on at Vinyl Tap on Adelphi Street.

Blackpool-born Cockburn said: “Love Letters From Blackpool will make you fall back in love with this famous seaside town, warts and all.
“It has charmed people from all over the country, helping people fall back in love with Blackpool, or even fall in love for the very first time.”
Cockburn, who has been described by critics as being funny, charming, and utterly at ease on stage, added: “I found quickly that in Blackpool you could have one of three jobs. A singer, a stripper or a sales person. I giggle when I’m naked, I’m crap at sales, so I tried singing instead.
“This led me to become a comedian, street artist, actor, drag act and subsequently a theatre maker. You could say that Blackpool has made me the person I am today.”
