Switch-On 2023

The biggest night of Blackpool’s event calendar – the Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On concert - will take place on Friday 1 September 2023.

2023 will see the annual Switch-On ceremony return to the outdoors where the Illuminations will be turned on as part of a free event with music and family entertainment. For the past three years, the Switch-On ceremony has been performed indoors with a limited audience, largely due to COVID restrictions.

Further details will be revealed in the weeks ahead.
