At one time the Blackpool Illuminations switch on was a comparatively low key affair, consisting of a ceremony followed by a Lancashire hot pot supper.  These days it has become a major event in itself which achieves huge public interest and is broadcast live on national radio.  The lights are turned on by a famous celebrity and it is accompanied by a concert with a line up of well known performing artistes.  Thousands of people travel to the resort to enjoy the occasion.  The build up to the switch on begins during the day and the event takes place in specially constructed area near the centre of the resort.
