Blackpool Tower Projections

This year, the Blackpool Tower Projections will run exclusively between 11 October and 3rd November and will once again transform The Blackpool Tower into a sea of light, colour and sound, as a stunning, digitally-mapped multi-media show is projected on to this iconic building.


Down The Rabbit Hole

Down the Rabbit Hole tells the story of an astronaut exploring new worlds. The show explores a fantasy based loosely upon a remarkable mission of determination and ambition. This experience draws the audience into worlds without gravity: beautiful, fantastic and full of uncertainty.

This incredible show was created by Czech-based digital art collective The Macula, an award-winning company formed in 2007. The team have dazzled audiences throughout Europe with their shows, gaining great acclaim in the UK with a 2011 with Luminious Flux to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Liverpool’s Liver Building.

Chasing Stars

Ross Ashton and Karen Monid of The Projection Studio were commissioned created three of our LightPool projection shows, the newest of which is Chasing Stars, based on the pioneering work of European Space Agency (ESA).

An eight-minute galactic tour, the show has been deisgned to entertain and inspire the next generation of astronauts and engineers.

In collaboration with Dr. Nick Lister of the Lawrence House Astronomy & Space Science Centre, the team visited Rossall School in Fleetwood, asking them to imagine what it would be like to live in space. Their ideas and drawing have been incorporated into the show.

Enchanted Blackpool

Enchanted Blackpool was created by Cecile Llewelyn-Bowen, the daughter of Illuminations Curator Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen. Cecile is a film-maker and brought designs created by her father to life in this show.

A flurry of cute characters and lavish backdrops delight the show’s main character, a woman who has wandered into this magical world, and she journeys from under the sea and to the opulent Blackpool Tower Ballroom.
