Covid 19 has changed the face of Blackpool Illuminations in 2020. For the first time ever, there will be no live concert on the Tower Headland with a 20,000 audience; instead there will be a virtual concert and switch on televised on MTV.
From 20.30 to 21.30 there will be a televised show starring Becky Hill, Diversity, Fleur East, Joel Corry, Mel C, Rae Morris and Tom Grennan.
At 21.30 the action will switch to the Tower ballroom where Perri, Jordan and Ashley Banjo will host the live switch on which is being performed by NHS heroes representing the frontline and key workers who have helped to keep us all safe during the pandemic.
