Annual Blackpool Illuminations Fundraising Ball

The annual Ball is a fundraising event. The Illuminations department has a long tradition of independently fundraising to support the show. Everything that is raised goes directly towards improving the show each year.

In recent years Blackpool Combined Association worked in partnership with the Friends of the Illuminations. They have raised in excess of £50,000 towards the running of the Illuminations through various initiatives.

Every year around four million people come to visit the World famous Blackpool Illuminations show, providing a £230million plus boost to the local economy.

The vast majority of the money required to pay for the illuminations is still paid for from Blackpool Councils coffers, but as everyone is aware, Council funding is incredibly restricted these days.
