See our Lights schedule and much more from 2015 to gain some ideas of what is to come in Autumn 2016!
Always eager to amaze year after year, in 2015 several stunning new displays made an unforgettable debut. Never-seen before lights included the iconic Gynn Island transformation to the new centre point and our very own Strictly Come Dancing inspired scene. Not forgetting our returning favourites that have amazed visitors in previous years!
Blackpool Illuminations have a rich history behind them and have become somewhat of an iconic part of British culture. Having been host to over 3.5 million visitors in 2014, Blackpool Illuminations have always been eager to please with an impressive list of former celebrity luminaries ranging from Andrew Lloyd Webber to Tim Burton.
There are many opportunities for businesses to get involved with the Illuminations, from displaying your logo along the coastline, to writing your own personal message on the iconic Blackpool Tower! Thanks goes to BES Utilities, who were 2015’s ‘power behind the Lights’!
For many years now a popular and unique way to experience
the Blackpool Illuminations is by a Tram Tour that runs
throughout the duration of the Lights.
Dates and times for 2016 will be confirmed nearer the time!
Tours depart from the tram stop outside
Pleasure Beach/Sandcastle Waterpark.
