It was an excellent night, however the confusion with the people with free entrance tickets trying to enter through the golden circle entrance and the security staff not being organised on what to do caused issues at the beginning. But once in great atmosphere x

The Illuminations was out of this world! The Acts were full of energy and really motivated the crowd..Loved it Not sure what Alfie Boe did.....every act built to a lovely climax and Alfie more or less did the switch on,he needed to sing more.
The After party is embarrassing food wise £27.00 for a stew and a mini doughnut and a marshmallow frankly day light robbery! I hope the V.I.P package didn’t get what we had with a bottle of champagne!

Excellent !! Great atmosphere, really nice for families and friends to be all involved,, I was a bit anxious with the security side with past history of terrorisim as one guy managed to get into the venue past security with no ticket which meant he had no bag check or stopped by anybody so that Was a worry to who actually could get in. He eventually get escorted out but the opinions of people around me were that that means anybody could get in

The added special effects , fire, steam, ticker tape and fireworks added to an exciting atmosphere.
The event has come a long way from when Red Rum switched them on in Talbot square ! (the last time I saw a switch on)
Only disappointment was just the one song from Alfie.

It was a fab day and night but the crowd with young ones all drunk was a bit too much when youve got a 4 year old with you. Maybe instead of golden circle have the children to the front and all children under 15 accompanied with an adult just to prevent it. There was a lot of drugs openly being taken which was shocking but the acts and atmosphere was amazing x

Very good event, great atmosphere. Only thing to mention is the access of food in the golden circle means you have to go the very back of the arena and push your way through hundreds of people. Not ideal when carrying it back either.

Excellent event, thoroughly enjoyed. The only negative issue was that we were in golden circle (highly recommended) and not allowed to take any food into the area. We assumed that there would be a hot dog stand etc in there but nothing unless we left the area. Would have made a difference to us as we ended up leaving early because of hungry children.

Apart from that was an fabulous day!

Amazing concert, great family value only down side big group of youths allowed in and were smoking, drinking ( brought in on them ) swearing, pushing young children around. Would definitely have a separate are for families only. Wouldnt allow smoking in the venue at all! Security was very tight and felt safe but no security walking in the crowds and when there was an issue it took awhile to be dealt with. Should have had zero tolerance to any idiots trying to spoil it for everyone. We were in the golden circle area..
All that aside we will book for next year.

Excellent event. The line up of guests was varied and probably appealed to most ages.
Despite winning general admission tickets in the ballot I chose to upgrade to four Golden Circle
It was a wise choice. The arena area never became crowded at all, we had a fantastic view plus we had access to all the facilities.
I must say that the only downer was the cost of food and drinks. Was WAY overpriced for what it was.
Only one other slight negative was that we wished that Alfie Boe had performed more than one song given that he was the star of the show.
All in all a well put together event and Id recommend it to anyone.

Awesome night. But organisation of entry for different tickets wasnt well organised. Noone seem to know anything. Expensive drinks. That let the night down. But acts were great

In my opinion Ive been the past 5/6+ years with my family and friends and not only I have said that this year between acts were long breaks with nothing to do in the past we have had people coming on to entertain everybody with like beach balls Mexican waves and stuff like this. But other than that it was a fabulous night and I would buy the golden tickets again !!

One of the best nights i've had at the light switch on and would happily pay a fee if that is the level of entertainment! My poor hips, feet and legs were throbbing from all the dancing and bouncing around we did. Even my boy got in on the action to...thank you Blackpool, same time next year 👍

We had an awesome night apart from not being able to get to the toilet. I had a gold wristband but that wouldnt get me into the toilets nearest me. I was told I needed to walk to north pier where my designated toilets were set. However it wasnt possible to get there! But apart from that everything was well organised and friendly. Great value - well worth the 10 we paid to be near the front. Thank you.

Not worth driving 5 hours from Milton Keynes to Blackpool for a minute or so of spectacle. You will have to do a lot more to beat Las Vegas. Sorry, but here you have an honest comment from somebody who thought it would be good to have Blackpool Illuminations switch-on 2018 on his bucket list. Also the chap who switched it on did not say very much i.e. did not even give me enough time to switch on my phone camera. Your security staff when asked at 08:30 pm when the switch on would be said 09:05, your entertainment stage manager at 9pm said with in less than an hour from then on. and then Mr Brown said 10, 9, 8 ................ and Bingo. Thank God my wife video'd it all. Beautiful, but much too short. For less money we could have peacefully been lying/sitting on the beach and seen the same. SO, No I will not recommend it!

I would consider going again but I think It would be nice if there was a designated seating area. It is a long time to stand especially for the elderly.
The prices for refresidents were extortionate.

This was my & my friends first time to the Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On and we enjoyed every minute. I am disabled with Ankylosing spondylitis and after the bag search area we were making our way to the standing area, one of the young ladies that we were talking to in the queue for the Golden Cirlcle came looking for us and asked us to join them by the barrier in front of the stage so I could have that for support, I must say with the girls kindness it made the experience very enjoyable.

A great night, well worth getting tickets for the Golden Circle, great to get up close to the stage and still have room around us.

The only downside was HRVY (not my thing), lack of toilets and poor drink choice and what was there was overpriced.
