Lancashire's answer to the Northern lights are definitely worth a visit this Autumn!
We're running a trip to Blackpool on the 28th October so you can see the world famous illuminations in one of England's best-loved seaside towns!
What are the illuminations?
The Blackpool Illuminations consist of almost every kind of light display you can imagine: lasers, neon, light bulbs, fibre optics, searchlights and floodlighting.
There are set pieces made out of wood studded with light bulbs: the characters and objects portrayed seem to “move” by way of winking lights. There are over 500 road features attached to lamp posts linked together with festoon lighting. Strings of lights along the structure of buildings pick out landmarks in luminous detail – you can always make out the Tower and the Pleasure Beach rides in this way.
The coaches will depart at the following times:
Walsall Campus 8.30 am
City Campus 9.15 am
Telford Campus 10.00 am
Leaving Blackpool: 9.30 pm
Tickets cost £15 and include travel.
