14 retro photos looking back at Burnley's old theatres, cinemas and nightclubs

People in Burnley have always known how to have fun.

This week’s walk down memory lane looks back at the town’s buzzing nightlife over the years, including old theatres, cinemas and nightclubs.

The pictures featured here are part of Keeping East Lancashire in the Picture, a two-year Lancashire Archives volunteer project bringing together people of different ages and backgrounds to digitise and make the collections of historic photographs in Burnley, Colne, Nelson and Accrington libraries more accessible, inclusive and sustainable. The project is funded by the The National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Friends of Lancashire Archives.
