A fantastic Switch On party!

There was something for everyone at the Switch On this year! For those old enough, Blue put on a fantastic show and they wowed the audience! For the younger ones in the audience, great acts like Fuse ODG and Mae Muller added their talent to the line-up as well.

New additions...

Enchanted Blackpool is a new addition to the Illuminations, which was created by Cecil Llewelyn-Bowen - the daughter of Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen. We can't wait to see it! Other themes this year include Frost Fairies and astronauts, as well as Blackpool Tower Projections.

An amazing line-up!

The Switch On concert featured amazing performances from artists Tom Grennan, Mae Muller, Fuse ODG, Blue, and Nina Nesbitt. With such a fantastic line-up, it's no wonder that thousands of people were lined up to see the grand illuminations light up Blackpool once again.
