Daily Lighting Up Times for 2014

Plan your break or holiday with the Switch on Times for the Illuminations in 2014

Official switch on times for when Blackpool Illuminations come on and go off each day in the 2014 season.

Think about it as blocks of a week, running from the weekend starting on a Friday night, until the following Thursday. Each week the Illuminations light up time is slightly earlier, as it gets dark earlier and the nights get longer, until the end of British Summer Time and the clocks change, when the Lights are turned on at 5pm.

On Friday and Saturday nights the Lights go off at midnight, Sunday night is 11pm, and then Monday to Thursday they are turned off at 10.30pm.

Traditionally the Illuminations always finished on the last weekend of October half term, but after a successful first year in 2013, thanks to an agreement between Blackpool Council and Merlin, an extra week has been added again for 2014.

These are official light up times provided by the Illuminations department.

The switch on times for each day of the season are listed individually in the Live Blackpool Events Calendar - along with hundreds of other things to do on the Fylde Coast.
