The Nixies of Oakpool
This interactive story uses animation, puppetry, lights and music to retell how the illuminations really came about! How years ago, a magical oak forest inhabited by multi-coloured Nixies was destroyed by humans and how each year we try to entice them back, but nothing quite compares to a Nixie light show!
Illuminated Tram Parade
To celebrate Blackpool’s unique tramway history, this Parade is a tribute to the rich heritage of our Illuminated Trams. Starting at Manchester Square, the parade presents a unique opportunity to witness Blackpool’s historic collection of illuminated tramcars featuring a battleship, trawler and Great Western train.
Back by popular demand, are Spark! the original and best LED drummers. Combining high impact drumming, dynamic choreography, playful characters and colourful lighting design.
An exhilarating menagerie of illuminated Carnival will hit the Tower Ballroom for an electrifying static showcase of music, puppetry and dance. Internationally recognised Carnival performers will present a showstopper over 30 minutes, bringing a diverse melting pot of Carnival magic.
From giant hand-crafted puppets to stunning illuminated dancers, there will be something for all the family.
Suitable for all ages – our Silent Disco will have three different music choices playing continuously throughout the night. Catering for all music tastes young and old, you’re bound to find a track you want to dance to!
