Carnival of the Lights

Carnival of the Lights - October 25, Blackpool Promenade

Last year’s hugely-successful illuminated tram parade returns as part of a dazzling Carnival Of The Lights on the night of October 25.

To celebrate Blackpool’s unique tramway history, the Carnival of the Lights is an illuminated tram parade in tribute to the rich heritage of our illuminated trams travelling in convoy along the seafront on 25 October. It presents a unique opportunity to witness Blackpool’s historic collection of illuminated tramcars featuring a battleship, trawler and Great Western train, travelling in convoy along the seafront joined by a procession of illuminated vehicles and costumed characters.
The procession leaves Blackpool Pleasure Beach at 17:45, arriving at Central Pier at approximately 18:00 to be joined by the entertainment procession. Proceeding to Blackpool Tower, make sure you bring your camera!
Spark! street theatre show is a magical live music, movement and lighting spectacular in which mysterious characters composed of light and sound transform the landscape around them and captivate their audience. Combining high impact drumming, dynamic choreography, playful characters and colourful lighting design.

House of Wingz

They will be performing a piece called the evolution of light which explores the use of light since the beginning of time- looking at how communities have used it for purpose and pleasure- the piece is factual, visual and exciting, an explosive fusion of breakdance, poppin, hip hop and house, and of course- lights! 

Please note, all the trams are now booked up.
