Students were treated to a Royal visit when Prince Edward dropped into Blackpool and The Fylde College.

The Prince headed into the University Centre as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee tour, where he spent time chatting to a number of students and staff, before enjoying performances from musical theatre degree students and the college choir.

As he unveiled a commemorative plaque in the Gallery, the Prince said: “It’s been so nice to meet so many of you and I’d like to wish you all the best with your studies and the future.”

Pauline Waterhouse OBE, principal of the college, said: “I’m so proud of all the staff and students for helping to make the visit such a success.

“I think we have certainly showcased the college and people seemed to find the experience very uplifting.”
