Blackpool Illuminations - late return

At 10 kilometres long and using over one million bulbs the Blackpool Illuminations are an awesome spectacle.

Blackpool Illuminations

1st September - 5th November 2017

 

See this seaside city of fun still buzzing with excitement and laughter long after other resorts have gone into winter hibernation!

 

At 10 kilometres long and using over one million bulbs the Blackpool Illuminations are an awesome spectacle.

 

Free time during the day to take in the sights of Blackpool.

Board the coach to see the illuminations with switch on from 7pm on the 7th Oct, and from 6.15pm on the 28th Oct. 

 

The Blackpool Illuminations consist of almost every kind of light display you can imagine: lasers, neon, light bulbs, fibre optics, searchlights and floodlighting. In 2012 there were more than 500 scenic designs and features. There are set pieces made out of wood studded with light bulbs: the characters and objects portrayed seem to “move” by way of winking lights. Three-dimensional illuminated scenes are also popular. There are over 500 road features attached to lamp posts linked together with festoon lighting. Strings of lights along the structure of buildings pick out landmarks in luminous detail – you can always make out the Tower and the Pleasure Beach rides in this way.

 

The design of the Illuminations, until very recently, has all been carried out in-house by the Illuminations Team. But for the first time in 2007 an outside designer was added to the team. I say added as its not just being able to design that counts it being able to design and work with the whole illuminations team that really counts. The team are a small highly skilled and experience bunch of very enthusiastic people dedicated to the yearly Illuminations spectacular. After the success of Laurence Llewelyn-Bowens Deco Dance in 2007 Laurence was again asked to design a new feature. The feature is under construction and thanks to the dedication of the team should be ready for switch on night.

 

Late return.
