Blackpool llluminations season 2016 is well on its way to a bumper year after Dame Barbara Windsor and a whole host of stars switched on the miles of twinkling lights earlier this month. VisitBlackpool captured all your memories and experiences of the special night and highlights of the evening are available to view here.
Due to the success of this year’s Switch-On event, VisitBlackpool are opening next year’s ticket ballot early; tickets are all free, all you have to do is register your details here to be in with a chance of winning tickets for 2017.
Each household can apply for a maximum of four tickets and the ballot results will be announced in July 2017.
The Tower Festival Headland has capacity for 20,000 people on Switch-On night, and 8,000 tickets will go to local residents, where the remainder of tickets are allocated to Switch-On Festival goers from across the UK.
Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council, Gillian Campbell, said: “Switch-On night is without doubt the biggest night in Blackpool’s calendar and is unbelievably popular with locals and visitors to the resort. The 2016 event featured some of the best names in British music and entertainment, given its popularity year on year we want to give people longer to register for wristbands. I urge people to apply for their wristbands now – if you’re successful, it would undoubtedly be the best free night you’ll ever have”.
Various VIP packages are also available. So do not hesitate and visit www.visitblackpool.com/switchon today to register or book. Good Luck!
