World Class: Fireworks & Illuminations!

Monday 13th August 2018
Mike - Cavendish Hotel

Well it's already rushing towards September and we all know what that means to Blackpool: The World Championship Fireworks and the world famous Blackpool Illuminations!

The World Fireworks Championship is held over the four Fridays in the month (7th - 28th Sept) at 8.30 (although the build up starts at 7.30.) The best of the best nations in the world of fireworks each stage a display launched from the North Pier just a short walk from us. It's a really popular event and it's free!

The Blackpool Illuminations are reckoned to be the world's largest free light show with over six miles of sparkle, glitter and colour on the Promenade between Bispham and Starr Gate. We like to walk them but lots of people drive through although that can take a very long time. Of course the Heritage Tram tours leaving from Pleasure Beach are ideal to view them from and include the iconic "Blackpool Express" Tram. (Fun fact: the Illuminated Western Train - Blackpool Express is the only tram to be driven from the back!)

So to add to the fizz and whoosh of the occasion we at the Cavendish Hotel have decided, as if the Illuminations and the fireworks weren't enough to add a little a bit more sparkle. If you book a two night stay with us for Thurs/Fri or Fri/Sat in September we will throw in a free bottle (37.5 cl) of sparkling wine for you to enjoy during your stay.

And with prices starting at £44 per night for two adults we think that makes a pretty good deal. Book above and in the special requirements put the word FIREWORKS to claim your wine. £88 for two sparkling nights out for two? What's not to like?
