Visit Blackpool

The Festival@LightPool

The Festival@LightPool is back for 2017 with a spectacular programme of live entertainment!

 This year’s free festival will take place during October half-term between 5pm and 7pm on Wednesday 25th, Thursday 26th and Friday 27th October with performances on the Tower Festival Headland and Blackpool Town Centre.


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!

Great workshops for LumiBanners, LumiWear, LumiDogs and LumiWheels for the Carnival of Lights.
