Blackpool Illuminations




Enjoy this year’s Blackpool Illuminations with the Staff Social Committee

The world-famous Blackpool Illuminations attract millions of visitors every autumn. The DMU Staff Social Committee has organised a coach trip for Saturday 21 October so you can enjoy this year’s fantastic light show too.


Detailed Description

In a tradition that dates back to 1879, hundreds of illuminated festoons and tableaux brighten up Blackpool Promenade during September and October evenings. Now, this free seasonal attraction is even more spectacular with the addition of LightPool, where the Blackpool Tower building comes to life with light, colour and sound in a series of projected shows.

During the day you’ll be able to take in some of the town’s many other attractions. You can book a ride along the promenade on one of the art deco heritage trams, go to the iconic Blackpool Tower for stunning panoramic views and pay a visit to its renowned ballroom or circus.

The popular seaside resort also boasts a Sea Life centre and Madame Tussauds, and don’t forget the Pleasure Beach with its white-knuckle rollercoaster rides and entertaining arena events. Check the Visit Blackpool website for full details of what’s on (pre-booking may be advisable for some venues).
