Blackpool is home to the world’s biggest free light show. For nine weeks every autumn, 74 miles of lighting cable adorns the North West town’s six mile seafront from Squires Gate to Red Mile Road. In 2014, 3.5million people visited the Blackpool Illuminations, with many returning year after year. As such, it is important that Blackpool Council keeps the show current and is able to continuously raise the standard.
“We needed to build redundancy in to the project. The easiest way to do that was by choosing the Panasonic projectors.”
For 2015, the Council was keen to use the latest in digital mapping projection technology to light up the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom with content that gave a nod to Blackpool’s history, incorporating its music and iconic imagery.
