Blackpool Tower bosses are hoping the beacon of the Fylde coast will inspire more festive lights displays this Christmas.

The attraction has launched a search to find the best Christmas lights display put on by homes in the area.

Whether it’s an effort to raise money for charity or just to spread a little festive cheer the original home of the Illuminations will celebrate the best and most diverse displays on its Facebook page, with winners taking home a family ticket to the Tower’s five attractions.

General manager Kate Shane said: “The Blackpool Tower is known for its glittering lights, especially around the festive period - in fact, the Tower is currently lit up like a beautiful Christmas tree.

“We are keen to celebrate other people’s efforts, big and small, that capture the fun of Christmas time - that’s why we’ve launched this competition.

“Glowing reindeers on rooftops, glittering presents in your garden or a multi-coloured masterpieces, we can’t wait to see all that the North West has to offer and we look forward to judging the entries.”

Entries can be emailed to until Monday, December 16.
