Blackpool Illuminations in 2010


With a cost of GBP 2.4 million, Blackpool Illuminations has to be an event like no other.


With over 100 miles of lights strung between the promenade poles and across the carriageway, it’s not wonder the Blackpool Illuminations attract in excess of 3.5 million visitors to see the 6 miles of lights that will be on for 66 nights between the 3rd September till the 7th November 2010. 


With so much going on including the Best of British Variety Tour, Roy Chubby Brown, Comedy Hypnotist Kent Webster, plus so much more, it’s a great place to go for either a weekend break with your loved one, or as a family. 


If this sounds like something you’ll be interested in, why not make the most of this event and find cheap hotels in Blackpool for either the week or weekend.  With over 157 hotels in Blackpool to choose from, you’ll be sure to find somewhere close to the event. 


With Robbie Williams confirmed to switch on the 2010 Blackpool Illuminations,  and the “Switch On Concert” being a ticket only event, the good news is that tickets are FREE! Although the full line up has not yet been announced, you can book your ticket for this event at the Visit Blackpool website. 


The Blackpool Illuminations concert is a free event on the Friday afternoon, and no tickets are required, it is a “first come, first served” event, so it’ll be recommended to turn up early to make sure you get in and get a fantastic position.
