You may have heard of pop-up shops and you must have at least seen a pop-up card or book? Have you ever seen a pop-up village? Well now is your chance. Earlier today (Friday 23rd August) Blackpool hosted its very own pop-up village.
When we saw this story online all the bwd team were excited, what a great idea! Variety and changes in spaces and locations stimulate the mind on a subconscious level so imagine what effect an entire village would have on your mind,if it appeared were you live.
The Time to Change Village at Cedar Square, Blackpool FY1 1BP is an interactive space, where the public can have open conversations about mental health, whilst engaging in a range of activities and having lots of fun.”

Unfortunately the bwd team have been extremely busy on a couple of important client deadlines today and have not been able to visit the village. If you have been, can you let us know in the comments section below. We would love to see what it looked like. Also if you could have a pop-up village anywhere where would you put it?
Have a great bank holiday everyone and thanks for reading.
