    TV personality Laurence Llewellyn Bowen appeared at Blackpool’s Best Western Carlton to pull the lever to switch on the hotel’s curated Illuminations display. The star, who has taken part in the iconic Blackpool switch on for several years, collaborated with the Illuminations team to produce a set of dazzling light sculptures as part of the hotel’s first ever display.

    The display marks the first ever time that a Blackpool hotel has taken part in the light show, and the team collaborated with Llewellyn Bowen in the hopes of adding an appropriate personality to the event. Meticulously planned, the project features lamps outside the hotel as well as on the roof, with LED lights shooting pastel colours through the hotel’s fountains.

    The event is expected to bring both new and returning customers to the hotel, and the famed interior designer was excited to have been part of creating the spectacle, which is expected to run for the next three years.

    “They really want to reflect the heritage and sophistication of Blackpool in the 1930s,” explained Laurence Llewellyn Bowen, according to Hotel Owner. “By delving into the illuminations archive we have been able to take inspiration from wonderful art deco designs.”
