Visit Blackpool

The Festival@LightPool

 The 2017 free festival took place between Wednesday 25th - Friday 27th October, and subsequently WON the Lancashire Tourism Award in the Large Event category - we're so pleased! 


Join us next year for more illuminating fun!


Blackpool’s three illuminated trams will form the first ever memorable, carnival parade along the promenade.

The amazing Sense of Unity by Dundu and Worldbeaters Music will parade two illuminated puppets along the Prom and through the town.

On all three nights, visitors will enjoy Spark! by Worldbeaters Music with high-impact drumming, superb choreography and amazing lighting.

Festival goers will love AFISHAL performing live in front of The Blackpool Tower, re-mixing commercial dance tracks using specially-engineered drums.

The final night will see Amor, a brand new dance production by Bilbobasso who brought an explosive mix of fire, passion and street theatre in 2016.

Throughout the Illuminations season you can watch spectacular 3D projection shows on the front of The Blackpool Tower Building - come and see!

Have a break at our food and drink concessions in the village on the Comedy Carpet. Get your photo projected on to The Blackpool Tower!
