Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On

The 2020 Switch-On party will take place on 4th September.

The free ticket ballot for the 2020 Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On event is now open!
It follows the overwhelming demand for last year’s event when thousands of people packed into the Tower Festival Headland Arena to watch a spectacular five-hour concert, culminating in an unforgettable switch-on by home-grown actress, Coronation Street’s Lucy Fallon.
The event is free for up to 20,000 people – all you have to do is enter the ballot for your chance to secure the hottest tickets in town. Winners will receive up to four wristbands per household. As always, half of the free tickets will be reserved for local people. 

The Switch-On ballot will remain open until midday on Monday 3 August, 2020
