Carnival Magic

Carnival Magic – Friday October 25, Blackpool Tower Ballroom - 7pm

PLEASE NOTE A CHANGE IN LOCATION. Due to weather conditions we have decided to move this event indoors to the Blackpool Tower Ballroom. This will still be a FREE event, and will operate on a first come first served basis. The doors will be open at 6.45pm. The entrance will be on the Promenade side.

Carnival of the Lights and Pyronix Event on Saturday will still take place outdoors.


An exhilarating menagerie of illuminated Carnival will hit the streets of Blackpool for an electrifying static showcase of music, puppetry and dance. We have handpicked a team of internationally recognised Carnival performers to present a four-part showstopper over 30 minutes, bringing a diverse melting pot of Carnival magic.

From fire-breathing beasts to stunning illuminated dancers, there will be something for all the family.
Carnival Magic
ROBOTS! Programmed to entertain, our illuminated drumming robots will wow any crowd. Controlled by the giant pink sparkly dancing robot queen; I.O.L.A 2.0, this entertaining street act will push you to party like it’s 2999.

FIRE BREATHING BEASTS! Gasp and wonder at their fiery release. This show features striking puppets and exciting pyrotechnics mixed with a sinister and hypnotic performance. With sweeping wings and scorched metal, Toni the Fire Bat is a visitor from an ancient, magical past, awoken from the fiery belly of the Earth to fight Bessimer, the Fire-Breathing Dragon.

CARNIVAL MAGIC! A 20-piece carnival band will spring to life and fill the stage with beautiful dancers in giant illuminated dresses, accompanied by red-hot carnival drummers and illuminated puppets Padmini and Shivaji, our Bollywood Prince and Princess.

THE GRAND FINALE! The show will crescendo with a full cast presentation of all puppets and performers, encouraging audiences to take to the dance floor and boogie to our Global Grooves with friends old and new.
