Unfortunately the weather is not being kind to us this evening with heavy rain and wind forecast. Due to this, many aspects of the Illuminated Tram Parade would not be able to go ahead and therefore we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the event this evening.

We were looking forward to seeing our visitors and residents enjoying this free live performance in its full splendour. We are all enormously disappointed that we have had to make the unfortunate decision to cancel but the safety of our performers and visitors is our main priority.

We hope you can still take advantage of the indoor events and light installations across Blackpool during Lightpool Festival. Carnival Magic will be taking place in The Blackpool Tower Ballroom on 28 October for ticket holders; experience the Silent Disco on The Fifth Floor in The Blackpool Tower on 29 October; and, starting today, check out Luma, the huge inflatable snail in the Winter Gardens, and 100 Local Lanterns in The Old Electric as they make their debut as part of the wonderful Light Art Trail across the town centre.
