This annual light show has been a major part of Blackpool’s attraction since 1879 when they were described as ‘Artificial Sunshine’. The Festival of Light compliments the traditional Illuminations with a contemporary look at the concept of light and art working together to create entertainment. Expect the Illuminations to be bookended by a fantastic celebrity-packed Switch-on Festival Weekend (1-3 September) with bespoke Illumination performances in September, and Lightpool Festival (TBC), a spectacular walking route linking Blackpool’s most iconic buildings and history through light installation artworks.
