The Illuminations will run from Sept 4th to 3rd Jan this year, the first time they have stayed on over Christmas and New Year. This year there will be a well-deserved tribute to some of our Covid19 heroes in the form of hearts, rainbows and the faces of 50 nominees. Other new features include a newly-refurbished pirate ship tableau, a replica spitfire illuminated with search lights and a video-mapped laser show in partnership with Hangar 42 and
a new “colour choreography” section featuring the latest LED and neon lighting technology along the Promenade. The legs of the Tower are also fully lit for the first time in 2 years!
Obviously, the traditional switch on concert has been cancelled this year but there will be a televised event starring the likes of Fleur East and Diversity; you can catch this on MTV at 8.30pm on 4th Sept
