Daily Lighting Up Times - 2017

What time do the Lights come on today?

Official switch on times for when Blackpool Illuminations come on and go off each day in the 2017 season.

Think about it as blocks of a week - starting on a Friday night until the following Thursday.

Each week the Illuminations light up time is slightly earlier, as it gets dark earlier and the nights get longer, until the end of British Summer Time and the clocks change, and the Lights are turned on at 5pm.

On Friday and Saturday nights the Lights go off at midnight, Sunday night is 11pm, and then Monday to Thursday they are turned off at 10.30pm, except October half term week when they stay on until 11pm.

Traditionally the Illuminations always used to finish on the last weekend of October half term, but an extra week was added in 2014 and was so successful that it's been continued.

The Illuminations always start on the Friday at the end of August bank holiday week - which is Monday 28 August this year so in 2017 the Illuminations are switched on on Friday 1 September 2017.
