Ever wanted to light up the Blackpool Tower?

Well now with this wondrous opportunity you can combine both.

Certain dates only of course.

Why not go up the tower like I did and get your certificate!

Most of the dates listed, seem to be for if you've got something wrong with you.
So it's £500 for what? To switch on a light switch

Spend £500 and go somewhere nice.
not far off the entry price these days
What next? £250 to turn them off?
I am already a part of history; when you visit the tower, in the ballroom you will find a scale model of the tower; and I helped renovate it for the tower centennial.
(Getting it through the door of the workshop was not easy, I stood on the base platform, keeping the tower steady; when the forklift quarter-inched it under the door lintel).

If I did that I'll accidentally drop it, I'll be part of history than for sure like that women who messed up a Jesus painting when trying to restore it

You werent my boss at the time were you??

He was convinced this huge, heavy model went ON TOP of the glass case; so you could see the lifts running up and down. We managed to talk him out of trying it.

My job was stripping out and replacing all the electrics that ran the lifts and lights; I expect it will have another rebuild to replace all those tiny filament bulbs with leds before long.

Despite it being decades ago, and my having been to Blackpool several times, high winds have always meant the tower was closed while I was there, so I have never seen it in place and working.
