Illuminations Tram Tour With Live Music #wherethelightsareshining

Especially for TBCMF festival goers arriving on Thursday 1st September in resort, we have arranged for you to be able to travel on an iconic heritage Blackpool tram whilst taking in the bright lights of Blackpool’s famous Illuminations. This amazing preview is one day prior to the official switch-on! There will also be live music from live musicians  playing country music classics to get you in the mood for the festival the next day.

The tour will start at the Pleasure Beach Heritage Tram Stop, before heading north along the Promenade, past the thousands of lights that make the coastline sparkle, along with all the sights that Blackpool has to offer along the way. The tram will continue north to Little Bispham before turning around and travelling back to the Pleasure Beach, meaning you get to see all of the lights in both directions.

Price: £15.00  per person

Departure: 19:45 for 20:00 departure, lasting approx. 60 minutes.

With so many travelling to the festival on Thursday and some attending the festival on their own, this is a great opportunity to get together, make new friends and enjoy becoming part of the TBCMF festival community. What better way to start the weekend than a trip round the world famous Blackpool Illuminations #wherethelightsareshining

Tickets & Shop

After the success of  TBCMF’s maiden weekend in 2019 and our second outing in 2021 we are delighted, to create something for artists, fans and us to look forward to for 2022.

The British Country Music Festival is proud to support country music artists from the British Isles (including all UK countries and Ireland).  We can hear a new sound, more nuanced, slightly subtler, slightly cooler being created by our homegrown talent. The Brits Are Coming!

You can expect headliners playing alongside established acts, playing alongside breaking artists. You will experience an eclectic mix of music styles of country music and all its wonderful sub genres. These including contemporary country, alt country, traditional country, bluegrass, country pop, country rock, folk, country soul, blues and Americana. Whatever the genre, the music comes first.

The festival has a relaxed, informal atmosphere. You will soon be chatting to fellow fans or the artists themselves. Each stage has its own meet and greet area for artists to meet you directly after their performance for photographs and for signing merchandise.

Built in 1875, our stunning indoor venue, the Grade II listed Winter Gardens in Blackpool, is the perfect stage to present a country music festival.  Described as a pleasure palace, our five stages include the world famous candlelit Empress Ballroom, the subterranean art deco Arena with its twin stages – acoustic and band stages and the tented Pavilion Theatre with its promenading horseshoe.

All the rooms have options for sitting, standing or dancing.

Being indoors gives us lots of advantages. The weather won’t spoil the party and you won’t have to trudge through mud to use temporary toilets.

As well as enjoying great company, a great line up and a stunning venue, all tickets are exchanged for wristbands that let you come and go as you please across the weekend. So you can take advantage of Blackpool’s seaside attractions and the world famous illuminations.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to TBCMF 2022  “Where The Lights Are Shining”.

See you in Blackpool from 2-4 September 2022

Best wishes

Martin & Marina

NB Although not confirmed yet, Friday is likely to be the switch-on night for Blackpool Illuminations, the motorways can become very busy we recommend setting off as early as possible.

Nobody knows how long this virus will be with us, but we must not let it stop us planning in the future. Having sucesfully delivered the festival safely in 2021 we are optimistic that by September 2022,

We support a system of Covis Passport for vacinated guests there will be better solutions to track and trace guests and availability of vaccines.

Our Guarantee:  If the festival is cancelled due to Covid-19 or restrictions imposed by government, you will be entitled to a full refund or if you prefer, you can hold on to your ticket at the price you paid and it will be valid for a re-arranged date.

We are determined to run the festival, but when we do it has to be safe for our guests, artists, crew and venue staff.

We work closely with the venue, local council, local safety advisory groups and we are following the planning considerations of the Purple Guide.
