The new Alice’s Garden is co-designed by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and the in-house design team. It draws on the story of Alice in Wonderland and, in particular, the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. You can see how it’s all brighter and more modern than the old version – fit for todays Illuminations display.

This is the original and popular Alice Tableau (below) which was badly damaged in storms in 2010.

To celebrate the new display, the Houndshill Shopping Centre ran a competition to give their shoppers the opportunity to win a once in a lifetime experience to switch-on the lights of ‘Alice’s Garden’.

Donna Hannigan from Blackpool was the lucky winner of the amazing prize.

She had a fantastic time with her family at Alice’s Garden, located on the Cliffs section on the North Promenade, when she switched the Lights on at 8pm on Thursday 4 September.

Debbs Lancelot is the manager of the Centre and she said: “The Illuminations are essential for the success of Blackpool’s thriving tourism and retail industry and we are proud to be part of this fantastic event.”
