A History of Lancashire in 70 Objects is an 18 month project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It is a partnership between Lancashire Heritage Learning, Museum Development North West and Lancashire Life magazine. The project aims to engage communities across the County Palatine (the old county regions: current Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Liverpool and Warrington and the Furness area of Cumbria) with objects and stories held in their local museums, galleries and heritage venues. It also aims to engage with new audiences and promote visits across all participating venues.
In 2017, the magazine Lancashire Life will celebrate its 70th birthday. To celebrate this, Lancashire Life will show 70 objects from heritage venues across Lancashire’s County Palatine between September and November that year and they will be included in the magazine. A guide of all the participating venues will be produced and distributed by Lancashire Life to encourage visits to all participating venues and for children and families, an 'I-spy' type trail guide will also be created.
