Join us for a celebration of Fleetwood’s heritage that will light up key landmarks and buildings in Fleetwood.
Fleetwood Lights 2023
This special event is inspired by Fleetwood’s 3 lighthouses. The 3 lighthouse system became operational for the first time on 1st December, 1840.
Fleetwood was the only port in the country to have had 3 lighthouses. One of these, the sea based Wyre light, was the first of its type in the world to be operational.
Fleetwood Lights is part of the Fleetwood High Street Heritage Action Zone HSHAZ) Cultural Programme funded by Historic England, HM Government, Arts Council England and the Heritage Fund with support from Wyre Council.
The Fleetwood Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) Cultural Consortium is a group of local arts and heritage organisations led by Fleetwood Museum, delivering a 3-year cultural programme of events and activities to celebrate and engage local people with their town centre heritage – this is called From Nothing to Now.
