Visit Blackpool

Glow in the Show

Blackpool has a unique relationship with light, so you can be part of the festival, too!

Friday 18 October (Blackpool Central Library)
Lightpool Festival will this year feature a late-night opening for Central Library, when the lights are dimmed and installed lighting illuminates the venue. Inside this magical atmosphere, there will be workshops for children, themed book reading, archive film footage of Blackpool Illuminations, a local art exhibition and close-up magic.
Workshops: 12 and 13 October
The much-loved Lumidogs returns, sponsored by Houndshill Shopping Centre, offering dog-owners a chance to make light-up costumes for their beloved pets, culminating in a grand finale to pick the best dressed pooch. Participants will then be encouraged to join us for a mass-illuminated dog walk as part of the Carnival of the Lights.  Workshop details to be announced.
