The big switch-on was Sept 1st, but the display continues until Nov 5th, so it's still not too late to get your visit organised!

  • Over 10km of lights, (that's over 6 miles) using over one million light-bulbs!
  • Annually - the display attracts over 3.5 million people!
  • The lights will shine for 66 continuous nights
  • The HUGE amount of equipment it takes to provide the light display have an estimated value of over £10million!
  • 45 staff, including artists, electricians, joiners, mechanics, painters and engineers, work all year round to ensure the displays are ready on time.
  • A total of 65,000 staff hours are used on maintenance, preparation, erection, operation and then dismantling the features, fixtures and fittings.
  • The very first ever display was activated by Lord Derby in 1934
