Blackpool's award-winning Lightpool Festival is returning this October half-term with two weeks of extraordinary free entertainment. 

The festival, which will take place between October 11 and 26, will provide an amazing mix of live performance and light-based art installations, including a replica planet Earth in The Blackpool Tower Ballroom; the world premiere of a large-scale Sun in the Winter Gardens and a display of giant illuminated see-saws in the town centre. 

The programme also includes the return of the Carnival of the Lights; Carnival Magic, featuring a menagerie of illuminated characters; a glow-in-the-dark children's football tournament; fire and light-based shows; 3D projections on to the front of Blackpool Tower building; and a town centre art trail.
