Lightworks – Heritage Tours

The Blackpool Community Heritage Guides invite you to join them as they introduce you to the fabulous Illuminations Collection. See some of the 20,000 plus pieces from the 1920s to the present day. Have a look at photographs, diagrams and beautiful original artwork that show the evolution of our beloved ‘Lights’.

Then enjoy your Lightworks Heritage Tour around the home of the Illuminations and see how they are made from design to final construction.

Be amazed at the scale of some of your favourite features and perhaps see some new ones in production. For those with illuminated autumn memories of Blackpool this is a tour not to be missed!
