Blackpool illuminations switch on

The 2019 Illuminations will see the Lights shine nightly until 3 November, and it all kicks off with the biggest night of the year, a night when Blackpool celebrates the start of Illuminations season with the biggest and coolest outdoor party!

Around 20,000 revellers will gather on the Tower Festival Headland Arena in the shadow of The Blackpool Tower to watch a stellar line up of musical talent perform.

The evening culminates with a celebrity pulling the switch as the Illuminations are turned on in a blaze of pyrotechnics!

Make sure you register to win free wristbands and be there to find out. And if you are unlucky in the wristband ballot, you can always buy a Golden Circle ticket that will guarantee your place in the arena.
