Visit Blackpool

The 2024 Display

The world-famous Blackpool Illuminations have been one of the UK’s most endearing and enduring visitor attractions for more than a century. Thanks to new investment and innovation year after year, the seafront show remains as compelling as ever.

Once again, the season will be extended over the festive period, shining nightly from 30 August - 5 January, 2025.

New features for 2024

It has been announced earlier in the year that there will be three new Illuminations installations for the 2024 display, with one of them being designed by Leigh Francis, best known for his charismatic alter-ego Keith Lemon, who is also a hugely talented artist. More details will be revealed over the coming months.

HM Government Towns Fund

*A selected number of features in this year's Blackpool Illuminations are supported by the Towns Fund. The Towns Fund is part of the Government’s plan for Levelling Up the UK economy.

Towns across England are working with the Government to address their growth constraints, deliver economic benefits and improve the lives of people within their communities. The overarching aims of the Towns Fund are to drive sustainable economic regeneration and productivity across the UK.
