    Hi, I’m Jasmine, a 15 year old singer songwriter training at a school in London in Musical Theatre. I’d love to perform at Blackpool Illuminations! I have been training since I was 4 years old attending musical theatre school full time since I was 10 years old. I have sung alongside Robbie Williams at the palladium and on his cd swing both ways. I released a hit on iTunes Bothered with you which is about my experience of being bullied as I have, and still get bullied. All proceeds going to Makesomenoisie. I have recently sung to the Duchess of Cornwall and at the Jimmy choo Christmas party as part of a choir.

    A coach full would like to visit Blackpool illuminations in 2019 Would we all need wristbands?
    Can we get into attractions without? How does this system work?

      Blackpool Illuminations are free to view. Just turn up between the end of August and the beginning of November and you can see them every day during the dark hours of the evening.

      There’s a page here about this years Switch On times which gives you the idea

      You can pay for the individual attractions separately, or you can buy a Blackpool Resort Pass from Visit Blackpool, the official tourism department at the council. If you’re staying and want to visit them all it does work out a lot cheaper.

      To visit the lights and walk or drive or cycle is free however you wish to make a donation towards the cost of running the lights, this can be done at a donation point at both the north end and also at the south end of the promenade, the wristbands are only required if you wish to be able to see the turn on,
      All other attractions within blackpool can be paid for as and when you go.
      If you are staying for a while you may wish to buy a big blackpool ticket which will give 1 person per ticket the best of what blackpool has to offer and this includes the following,
      The Blackpool Tower Lift
      The Blackpool Tower Dungeons
      The Blackpool Tower 4d cinema
      Blackpool Pleasure Beach Wristband
      The Blackpool Tower Ballroom.
