Blackpool Illuminations

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


Save the dates - Blackpool Illuminations will be shining from 2 September, 2022 - 2 January, 2023. 

Update: As a mark of respect following the death of Her Late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, the Blackpool Illuminations display will not be lit on Monday 19 September.
The Blackpool Tower will be illuminated in red, white and blue and will remain lit throughout the period of mourning and on the evening of The Queen's State funeral. The full Illuminations display will resume on Tuesday 20 September.
