New Year’s Eve Fireworks in Blackpool

Friday 31 December at 5pm

Say “goodbye” to 2021 and get ready to say “hello” to 2022 with a celebratory fireworks display. It takes place late afternoon on the Tower Festival Headland on New Year’s Eve.

In the depth of winter on New Year’s Eve dusk will arrive at not much past 3pm. So by late afternoon the sky will be dark so that all the family can enjoy the display.

The free fireworks will be launched around 5pm on December 31 from the beach in front of The Blackpool Tower. It’s a stunning finale to end the year.
