Visit Blackpool

Lightpool Festival

Dates: 16-31 October

Blackpool’s award-winning Lightpool Festival returns for 2020, transforming Blackpool's town centre and promenade with a spectacular programme of light-based installations.

The festival presents 16 nights of free family entertainment and illuminating fun, including a self-guided illuminated art trail with extraordinary artworks by local, national and international artists.
With the majority of features located outdoors, you can safely social distance from other visitors. All you need to do is grab a hot drink, or even some fish and chips, make sure your phone is charged for plenty of photo opportunities, and marvel at the brilliant features on display.
Full details of the programme will be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out what’s already confirmed below.
