The Illuminations, which have been described as ‘the greatest free light show on earth,’ is a unique event. Made up of more than one million bulbs, it stretches for over six miles, offering a remarkable spectacle that draws tourists from around the world.

The Illuminations run for 66 days every year, and this year will be held until Sunday, November 5 and alongside the main Illuminations, Genting Casino Blackpool will be displaying its own specially-designed illuminations. The display will be accessible for all visitors who travel to Blackpool during this time.

Iconic attraction

The Genting Casino Blackpool illuminations have been arranged and designed by well known consultant and TV personality Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, who has also had the responsibility of curating and overseeing the entirety of Blackpool Illuminations for this year.

Speaking about the announcement of the partnership, Janine Marshall, the general manager of the Genting Casino Blackpool said that the company was delighted to be associating with the Illuminations for the first time this year:

“The illuminations is an iconic annual attraction for the town of Blackpool, which people travel from all over the country to experience. We very much look forward to being a part of the festivities this year, and to sharing Genting’s own exciting illumination for all to see.”
