Dawn my friend and fellow photographer obtained me a wrist band to Blackpool Lights Switch On.
We stood on the comedy carpet facing the stage as a young local singer performed to the ever increasing crowd.
The night consisted of performances from singers, DJs and dancers.
The performances of the night were by Fatman Scoop who whipped the crowd up the crowd to do anything he asked. Diversity danced and threw themselves around the stage in their Special way.
The lights were switched on by Dame Barbara Windsor. She had been evacuated to Blackpool from London as a child and it was obvious she has a soft spot for the town.
Thank you to Dawn for the wristband. Thank you to the organisers and staff for a well run event.
