Over 15,000 people are expected to enjoy Blackpool’s biggest night of the year - The Big Switch On Show will be on the promenade on the newly completed Tower Headland, with thousands more flooding into the resort to see the award-winning Blackpool Illuminations switch on. Enjoy a great family holiday in Blackpool and see a mystery star flicking the switch to launch the Blackpool Illuminations attractions.
In 2011, Robbie Williams, one of the biggest stars in the country, had the honour of switching on the famous lights. The entertainment-packed event also featured singing sensation Alesha Dixon along with a host of other big names.
2012 included 6 medal winners from Team GB, including gymnast Beth Tweddle, long jumper Greg Rutherford and Karina Bryant from Judo.
