Blackpool town centre becomes illuminated for Christmas in November, when a celebrity is invited to turn on the lights. Expect a gigantic Christmas tree with sparkly baubles, and streets lined with chandeliers and snowflakes as well as plenty of entertainment in the run up to the big switch-on. It’s definitely one for the smaller members of the family, unless you’re intending to do a bit of star-spotting. Past celebs have included X Factor winner Joe McElderry, Atomic Kitten and highly acclaimed duo the Cheeky Girls.
