One of the greatest and biggest elements that of 2015 is an exciting new elements project called LightPool. Lightpool will revolutionise the Illuminations using new creative content, with the most exciting and noticeable change being the introduction of projection mapping technology. As well as the incredible display along the six mile stretch of Promenade, a stunning projection show will adorn The Blackpool Tower building.  The specially created 3D film will offer something totally different and truly spectacular. On top of that, there will also be a whole host of interactive and exciting events that will accompany the display with +the Grundy Art Gallery and others playing a key role.
