Percy Dayman, Founder

Blackpool Symphony Orchestra was founded by Percy Dayman in 1921.

Our Centenary season was during COVID 19 lockdowns but we kept connected online throughout. Our composer in Residence, Edward Rugman, arranged Somewhere Over the Rainbow and our virtual recording raised over £3,000 for Blackpool Food Bank. 

We celebrated our Centenary +1 season with four great concerts.
