British Beaches in the Movies: Blackpool

Blackpool Beach is famous for many things: Blackpool Tower, ‘The Big One’, and hen parties to name but a few. Perhaps a more artistically admirable thing to remember Blackpool for, however, is the film Bhaji on the Beach (1993) in which three generations of Asian women take a day trip from Birmingham to Blackpool learning some home truths about themselves and their relationships along the way. Gurinder Chadha’s film won numerous international awards and served as springboard for her next film Bend it like Beckham (2002).
