Blackpool illuminations switch on is a key event in the holiday season and is part of an entire weekend of entertainment including fireworks and other activities. It is the start of the autumn lights display and the ceremony is carried out by a famous celebrity. The switch on is accompanied by a concert with invited performing artists and is broadcast live on BBC Radio. It is given much publicity and thousands of people turn out to enjoy the occasion, often queuing during the day to make sure of getting a good position from which to view the proceedings. The concert takes place in a purpose built arena near the promenade and there is usually early evening entertainment.
