Summer may be gone but festival season is still in full swing and September brings with it an abundance of unique festivals and events for literary lovers, sporty types and foodie fans to enjoy.
Every autumn, Blackpool lights up the Lancashire skies with a sparkling spectacle that will leave you feeling dizzy.
You really have to see to believe it. The flamboyant light show has been dazzling crowds since 1912, when 10,000 bulbs were lit to celebrate Blackpool’s first visit from the royal family; the Illuminations have lit up Blackpool every year ever since.
Nowadays, more than a million bulbs, lasers and animatronics flash, sparkle and twinkle along six miles of Blackpool’s iconic Promenade from the end of August until November, and they get more extravagant each year. The very best way to experience this electrical extravaganza is to hop on a heritage tram, but be sure to book in advance as tours sell out quickly.
Blackpool Illuminations’ big switch on event is on 31 August, and the Illuminations will be live every night until 4 November.
