Blackpool Christmas Lights Switch-On

Don't miss the big Blackpool Christmas Lights Switch-On with Blackpool BID and Radio Wave. Emmerdale Star Danny Miller will be there to pull the switch and light up Blackpool with our festive lights, with performances from Astrid, Owen Holt, Birchall, Nicola Hayton, The Demon Pixies, plus more local acts. 

It takes place on  Saturday, 1st December in St. John's Square from 14:00 - 17:30.

Blackpool BID said: “Blackpool town centre has so much to offer to Christmas shoppers in terms of the mix of independent and national brands, illuminated streets and a vastly-improved range of cafes and restaurants.

“The Switch On Event will launch Christmas in Blackpool and we are delighted to announce that Danny Miller will flick the famous switch.

“Danny is known for playing the role of Aaron Dingle in the ITV soap opera Emmerdale, for which he has won several awards, including winning the British Soap Award for Best Actor three times (2011, 2012, 2016). He’ll be joined by a supporting cast of local entertainers and more names will be announced in the coming weeks."
