LightPool at Blackpool Illuminations

A £2 million investment has reinvented the Blackpool Illuminations for future generations.

The investment from the Coastal Communities Fund in 2015 resulted in the development of LightPool at Blackpool Illuminations - a wonderful and electrifying new attraction that will take your breath away.
Throughout the traditional Illuminations season, LightPool transforms The Blackpool Tower into a sea of light, colour and sound, as a stunning, digitally-mapped multi-media show is projected on to this iconic building.
There are now five individual projection shows including the three headline shows – Down The Rabbit Hole, Chasing Stars (featuring astronaut Tim Peake) and Enchanted Blackpool.
The ideal viewing area to watch the shows is the Comedy Carpet – the area of the Promenade in front of The Tower. So why not get out of your car, stroll along the promenade beneath the Illuminations and then enjoy the LightPool experience!
Watch out too for The Festival at LightPool – a special, free event during October half term that will feature live light-based performances on the promenade and in the town centre. Full details will be revealed soon!
