Switch-On hoodies to show love for Blackpool

The Script
The Script
Have your say

Show your love for Blackpool with an exclusive I Heart Bpl hoodie, being offered to a thousand Blackpool residents who buy tickets for this year’s Illuminations Switch-On event.

As a thank you to local people supporting the August 30 & 31 event, bosses at VisitBlackpool are giving away the hoodies to people with an FY postcode.

Anyone planning to see The Script at the official Switch-On or are buying a weekend ticket can get a hoodie.

There are only a thousand to give away.

Natalie Wyatt, managing director of Marketing Blackpool, said: “We really want to say thank you to our local residents for supporting this year’s Switch-On.

“Unfortunately we cannot do that by offering discounted tickets as this is not feasible and is unfair to people who pay full price. However, we will give hoodies to 1,000 people living in the area who buy either a Script or weekend ticket, or who have already bought them.

“I hope by giving hoodies to the local people who are supporting this year’s Switch-On weekend they will realise this is our way of saying thank you to them.”

To qualify for an I Heart Bpl Switch-On hoodie residents need to take proof of address in the form of Council Tax/utility bill or bank statement to the Church Street entrance of the Winter Gardens Box Office between 11am and 3pm from Wednesday August 21 to Fri 23.

One hoodie will be distributed per ticket shown. The hoodies are only available to FY residents purchasing tickets for The Script or weekend tickets to see The Script and Madness.

Tickets for The Script and Madness are available from VisitBlackpool Tourist Information Centre, See Tickets, Ticketmaster and GigsandTours.

Tickets for Madness are priced £20 and weekend tickets are also available to see both concerts for just £45.

Tickets for The Script are £34.

VIP packages priced at £65 for Madness are available by calling (01253) 478209.
