4Wall brings Vegas-style show to  Blackpool Illuminations

An exciting new partnership with an international entertainment company has brought a Vegas-style light show to Blackpool Promenade.

Working in association with designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, 4Wall Entertainment has transformed the Theatre D’Amour show within the Blackpool Illuminations into a showcase for cutting-edge lighting and video technology.

The 4Wall Theatre Of Light, which features a series of animated “flying screens”, is being staged in a specially-made unit on the promenade close to South Pier.

4Wall UK’s Simon Stuart has visited Blackpool Illuminations many times over the years and was eager to incorporate 4Wall’s technology and creativity to revitalise the Theatre D’Amour feature which had been in place for a decade. Simon explained: “I have loved Blackpool since I was child. The story of lighting can be seen through the history of the town and how lighting has developed from tungsten light bulbs to modern-day LEDs.

“Through our meetings with Laurence and the Illuminations team, we were able to develop a concept that introduced modern technology alongside unique Blackpool video content.”

Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council, added: “We are delighted to be working with 4Wall in bringing a new dimension to this year’s Blackpool Illuminations.

“It is a very exciting concept and one that will help to encourage visitors to get out of their cars and view the Illuminations on foot.” The 4Wall Theatre of Light will be in operation until 3 November with four shows per evening every 15 minutes on the hour.  Here’s a taster of what you can expect, click here.
