How to Support

Blackpool Illuminations are a free light show, relying on public and business donations to help ensure the spectacle continues to shine for future generations.

You can make your own contribution to the Lights via any of these means: 

  1. Public Collections - There are manned collection huts at both the south (Starr Gate) and north (Bispham) gateways to Blackpool Illuminations and Promenade. The collection huts will be open throughout the season and any donations are welcome go towards the upkeep and development of the annual display. No spare change? No problem, we have contactless payment machines at our collection huts in collaboration with Barclaycard.

  2.  Donate Online - Donations can be made online here.

Commercial Business Opportunities

Are you looking for a creative and high profile way of promoting your brand? There are a number of commercial opportunities available to showcase your business to over *18 million visitors over the Illuminations season.

Business Partnerships - We have a wide range of other commercial opportunities for businesses to get involved in the Blackpool Illuminations. These include featured sponsorships within the display and straightforward donations that will help to ensure the Lights continue to shine for many years to come.

We also have our own in-house design service, supplemented by the talents of creative designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen. It’s a unique opportunity to promote and showcase your business in a fun and entertaining way.
