As the summer season draws to a close, Blackpool looks forward to long autumn nights bathed in light and colour.

Blackpool Illuminations are considered to be the greatest free light show on earth, which entertains millions of visitors each year and brings glowing warmth to even the coldest October evening.

This years Illuminations are bigger and better than ever, with a whole host of new features including:

  • LocalHeads – 288 people from across the UK will feature in this colourful portrait-based installation
  • The Victorians – An impeccable pair of characters from yesteryear parade the promenade in their gloriously illuminated Victorian dress.
  • Lolly Dolly and Mr Delightful – A reworked 1970s Ice Cream Van, bejeweled in thousands of lights
  • Lumicycles – showing their illuminated pedal power as they cycle their way through the Lights.
  • Plus much much more
