Illuminations

The team are gearing up for our annual Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On in September.

Until then, check out this behind-the-scenes time-lapse video of how some features are created. The Illuminations are made using fibreglass, wood and steel and all the magic is made at our Blackpool Illuminations Depot here at the seaside, which involves expert craftsmanship and a creative eye.
