A Midsummer Night’s Dream... August is going to be fantastic! How do I know? Because we are in the best place in the world to enjoy it. So grab a glass of something cool and take your copy of the List down to the beach to enjoy. Your August List contains hundreds of events and ideas, plus many wonderful local businesses and services.

Local List

And of course, Ride the Lights on Tues 27th before Jonathan Ross presses the switch on Friday 30th, with a concert on the Tower Headland by The Script and Eliza Doolittle. Despite the summer, Local List is publishing a record bumper issue this month. Never mind the economy, Blackpool businesses are succeeding. So well done to all our advertisers. Whatever your August, may it be wonderful!

In this month’s Diary you’ll see plenty of activities at Stanley Park - the visitor centre is well worth a visit. And in the sunshine, the boating lake is the ideal place to spent a relaxing afternoon. The Bandstand has live music every Sunday, for free. If you enjoy cricket, our clubs have plenty of fixtures and offer a warm welcome for socialising or chilling out on the boundary.

David Thorley


P.S. I hardly dare mention it, but... the football season starts up with PNE v Blackpool on 5th at Deepdale in the Capital One Cup! Then Barnsley visit for the first home game on Saturday 10th. Will we have grass and 11 players? Fingers crossed!

‘Summertime - and the living is easy’


August begins with the sun in the sign of Leo and ends in the sign of Virgo. It was originally named Sextilis (it was the sixth month in the Roman calendar) and was renamed in honour of Augustus in 8 BC because several of the most significant events in his rise to power, culminating in the fall of Alexandria, which fell in this month.

final gig On 1st August 1965 the Beatles said goodbye to Blackpool for the last time. They played here 11 times. 1963 - 7, 14 July ABC Theatre, 21 July & 4 August Queens Theatre, 11, 25 August & 8 Sept ABC Theatre. 1964 - 19 July ABC Theatre, 26 July & 16 August Opera House. 1965 - 1 August ABC Theatre.

August's flower is the poppy, and its birthstone is the sapphire. In August 1947, the British colonies Pakistan and India gained independence. Unfortunately, in October 1947 they went to war over control of Kashmir. August is a time for fun - with the Edinburgh Festival, Eisteddfod and Notting Hill Carnival.

The Dog Days of summer are the hottest, most sultry days of summer. Dog Days can also define a time period or event that is very hot or stagnant. The term "Dog Days" was coined by the ancient Romans, who called these days ‘caniculares dies’ (days of the dogs) after Sirius (the Dog Star), the brightest star in the heavens besides the Sun. The Romans believed it to be an evil time "when the seas boiled, wine turned sour, dogs grew mad, and all creatures became languid, causing to man burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies". The ancients sacrificed a brown dog at the beginning of the Dog Days to appease the rage of Sirius, believing that that star was the cause of the hot, sultry weather. The Old Farmer's Almanac lists the traditional timing of the Dog Days as the 40 days beginning July 3 and ending August 11, coinciding with the ancient heliacal (at sunrise) rising of the Dog Star, Sirius. According to The Book of Common Prayer (1552), the "Dog Daies" begin on July 6 and end on August 17.
