Welcome to Issue 18 of the Burnley Magazine, which includes a mix of exclusive interviews, reviews and features.
You’ll find features on interior design, local arts and culture, places to stay, and local businesses and clubs that deserve a showcase.
This year’s magazine focuses very much on Burnley’s thriving arts and culture scene, featuring the fabulous work of local designers, photographers and artists.
Our main feature showcases emerging textile designer Becca Who and her stunning clothing and accessories collection inspired by Burnley’s surounding countryside and history, with the fashion shoot in the historic setting of Burnley’s Towneley Hall and Museum.
We are also delighted to bring you a special photography feature commemorating the WW1 centenary, with the story behind Burnley’s love of the French Liqueur, Benedictine.
Our aim is to show you all that is special about this thriving Lancashire town – our fabulous housing and lifestyle offer, our stunning countryside, our arts and culture offer – but most of all our friendly welcome, which was recently acknowledged with the accolade of being named the friendliest place in the UK.
You’ll get a real feel from the features within the magazine just how passionate people are about the place, and the special place it has in people’s hearts, and we’re delighted to bring you an interview with the man of the moment Sean Dyche, Manager of Burnley Football Club, the beating heart of the town.
Visit Burnley and take an exclusive spa break, stay in one of our boutique or historic guest houses, visit our stately homes and museums, take a boat ride along the canal, enjoy our festivals and events, or just relax and take in the beautiful countryside.
Whatever your visit entails you can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome.
