Each year, the Blackpool Illuminations attracts over 4 million visitors to Blackpool and the Fylde Coast. It's both a spectacle to see and a significant economic boost for the coast - so everyone wins!
Blackpool Council pay for the Illuminations to be maintained, put up and to appear on our promenade each year.
The Illuminations Fund exists to collect additional money from the people who enjoy them and the businesses who benefit, to pay for new features and innovation. This refreshes the Lights as a major attraction and gives people a reason to keep returning each year.
By making a donation and by buying your merchandise from the official retailers in the new LightPool village, you can help to fund the development of new features in the Illuminations and make them bigger and brighter in the future.
One of the fabulous new features for 2016 is the new donation stations - there's one at either end of the promenade to welcome you with an arch over the road and a swag of glittering LED lights.
Make your donation in the new collection cabin and collect your souvenir brochure (see below) and see your own personal 'Thank You' lit up above your head in lights!
