It's Better with the Lights on

Explore our Illuminations gallery

It's like Blackpool Illuminations in here! Well, we'll take that as a compliment. Who wouldn’t be excited about a glittering, gleaming light party that everyone’s invited to? Big ones, tall ones, some as big as your head. All designed and made right here in Blackpool.

In this gallery you can design your own illuminations or find out more about the brilliant people behind the lights that we all know and love.

The excitment of the big light switch on is a bit of Blackpool magic. Which was your favourite celebrity switch on? From George Formby to Ken Dodd, Red Rum and Kermit the Frog, Robbie Williams and Peter Kay. We've seen all the big names here for the lights.

Take a trip down memory lane and light up your life in our Illuminations gallery.
