Light up your life!

All is bright

The Blackpool Illuminations is an annual event that attracts over three million people every year. Six miles of glittering lights stretch the full length of Blackpool Promenade. They brighten up the night sky in every design and colour you can think of. There are even illuminated trams!

Over one million lamps are used to create the displays - they're not called 'The Lights' for nothing, you know!
