Blackburn Festival of Light

15th Dec - 16th Dec

Light up your festive season by being part of the Festival of Light!


Make your lanterns in advance and meet on Saturday 15th December at 4:30pm on Ainsworth Street. The parade will begin at 5pm ending on King William Street around 6pm.

Here you can expect to be dazzled by the festival activity; think samba bands, dancing, and fire performers culminating in a spectacular firework display.

Blackburn Festival of Light needs volunteers – come and join the team, have fun and make a positive difference to your town.

Lots of different opportunities available from working with artists, to stewarding, providing help with social media to film and photography.
