The Blackpool Illuminations were switched on last night by the amazing local singing superstar Alfie Boe much to the delight of thousands of people inside the arena on the Promenade.
Visit Blackpool really do deserve huge acknowledgement and credit for pulling off one of the best Switch On’s in history..!
It was absolutely perfect, exceptional organisation from the moment you entered the arena..
We decided on seeing the Switch On within the VIP area and was very impressed with all the facilities, the catering by Campbell & Rowley was exceptional both during with their picnic boxes and at the after show party at the Blackpool Tower..Just amazing..
We even had the superb Notarianni Ice cream..!
Its always great to see Richard Ryan, Richard left as Illuminations Manager this year, but his legacy will always live on..
What I liked this year was they gave local talented artists the opportunity to perform on the Switch On stage, they didn’t disappoint..
We are blessed with so much local talent..but what caught my eye was Kyle James Passmore an incredible singer that looked very much at home on the big stage singing in front of thousands..To be honest I thought that Kyle was the best performer of the night..!
DJ Becca Dudley who fronts various MTV shows was the host and compare and she did an amazing job in creating the atmosphere in between sets..
Blackpool has always been blessed with attracting incredible artists to perform, last night was no different..
Diversity & DVJ
and of course the amazing superstar Alfe Boe had the crowd bouncing and singing !
A short 23 minute video of this wonderful event..
The after show party was quite incredible, Touch the Pearl and various Circus artists were there to ensure that the end of the evenings lavish entertainment went on to the end..
Thank you for reading I hope to be attending again in 2019..
