Terry Regan and Andrew Hazlehurst

Terry Regan

Terry Regan, a happily married Blackpool man, is a graduate of Tyldesley School and the ‘School Of Hard Knocks’. He and his wife Jean have six children, eight grandchildren, and two Scottie Dogs! By day he is a local builder, whilst in his spare time he is a writer/historian, having had several articles published at home and abroad, plus the odd TV and radio appearance. His particular interests centre on the history of Lancashire, especially Blackpool, with a bias towards the area’s links to the American Civil War. He is presently writing a book concerning certain aspects of this war.

Andrew Hazlehurst

Andrew Hazlehurst has been visiting Blackpool to see the Illuminations for the last thirty years. In 1986 he attended the Illumination Department's Open Day which fuelled his enthusiasm for the annual spectacle.  Ever since then, he has been a regular visitor to the Open Days and forged links with successive Directors and Managers. He is now one of the most knowledgeable people on the subject and was delighted to be approached to co-write the history of the Illuminations. Andrew is a school teacher and lives in Derbyshire.
