Blackpool Illuminations

The world-famous Illuminations need little introduction. There are six miles of traditional festoons and tableaux along the Promenade - no wonder it’s commonly known as the greatest free light show on Earth!


Blackpool Illuminations 2020 update:

The 2020 Blackpool Illuminations display will now burst into light again on the night of 2 December to bring some festive sparkle and Christmas cheer across the town for local residents. Find out more on this update here.  The display had been suspended until further notice due to the national lockdown restrictions which will end on 2 December at 00:01am. The Blackpool Tower, which has become a symbol of hope and optimism throughout this pandemic, remains lit.
