Blackpool Illuminations Switch On

Blackpool Illuminations Switch On

The Blackpool Illuminations Switch On is the biggest night out of the year in Blackpool.

It’s the Friday evening in summer, traditionally at the end of the Bank Holiday week. It’s the night when the famous switch is flicked to turn on the world famous Blackpool Illuminations!

The Switch On event was first held in Talbot Square outside the Town Hall. Then it moved to Central Car Park. When the new promenade was built, Switch On’s moved to Tower Festival Headland.
