The free ticket ballot for the 2020 Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On event is now open!
It follows the overwhelming demand for last year’s event when thousands of people packed into the Tower Festival Headland Arena to watch a spectacular five-hour concert, culminating in an unforgettable switch-on by home-grown actress, Coronation Street’s Lucy Fallon.
Since then, the VisitBlackpool team has been swamped with requests for information on this year’s event which will take place on Friday 4 September. It will once again feature a star-studded concert on what is the biggest night in Blackpool’s calendar.
The event is free for up to 20,000 people – all you have to do is enter the ballot for your chance to secure the hottest tickets in town.
People can put their name in the hat by registering at www.visitblackpool.com/switchon. Winners will receive up to four wristbands per household. As always, half of the free tickets will be reserved for local people.
Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council: “Switch-On night is a magical occasion and the demand for free tickets gets bigger every year.
“The 2019 Switch-On was a brilliant success with Lucy Fallon flicking the switch and some fabulous performances by the likes of Busted, Diversity, Becky Hill, Nina Nesbitt and Sigma.
“It’s a night not to be missed and I would urge people to apply for their tickets now – it could be the best free night out you’ll ever have!”
The Switch-On ballot will remain open until midday on Monday 3 August, 2020.
Watch out too over the coming weeks for details of how you can guarantee your place at the Switch-On party with our special VIP and Golden Circle ticket offers.
