September 4th to January 3rd
In 2020, the Lights will be shining from 4 September 2020- 3 January 2021.
The world-famous Illuminations need little introduction. There are six miles of traditional festoons and tableaux along the Promenade, illuminated tram tours every evening and the return of the popular Lightpool Festival during October half-term - no wonder it’s commonly known as the greatest free light show on Earth!
This year, for the first time ever, Blackpool’s annual Illuminations display is to be extended by TWO months to provide an invaluable boost to the resort’s tourism season.
To help with social-distancing, a one-way system will be in place at busy times for those walking through the illuminated tableaux section at North Shore. To do this, head to Red Bank Road (at the end of the lights) and walk north to south. Happy viewing!
